A: Primary Significance
The Hawkins House at 1927 W 17th Avenue was built in 1912-1913. It is an early Shaughnessy house and a unique example of the Queen Anne style. It features a centrally set rounded turret extending the full height of the house with a domed roof, spire and curved windows, a broad sweeping roof line and a gambrel roof form extending to the west, and leaded glass in the upper sashes of the windows.
The historical association is with John Hawkins, a carpenter who had previously built a house at 1020 Victoria Drive in a similar style but in a more modest form and scale. He lived here until his death in 1920, and his widow Maria Hawkins remained here until her death in 1931.
