"The Hays Hood House is one of Tallahassee's few remaining examples of Queen Anne architecture. The style, popular in the 1880s and 1890s, is characterized by turrets, towers and elaborate decorative woodwork that lead some to call them 'gingerbread houses.'
Jesse Hays, who helped start Tallahassee's first phone company, had
the house built in 1910, using a pattern from a house-pattern book.
During World War II, the home was converted into apartments and Hays
moved into an adjoining cottage. In 1949, Hays sold the house to
Tallahassee insurance agent Buck Hood and his wife, Rebecca, who
converted it back to a single family home. In 2004, the widowed
Rebecca Hood sold the house to the Florida Trust for Historic
Preservation, which restored the house as its new headquarters."
