Textured concrete block houses were embraced by Frederictonians during the early 20th century as they were a convenient and affordable method of obtaining a distinctive masonry building at a fraction of the cost of building in stone. This example is one of the finest in the City, built by then mayor of Fredericton Storey Hooper in 1911. The house’s cast columns supporting the wraparound porch and the 42" wide front door are enriched on the interior by sumptuous stained wood trim and a wealth of beveled and stained glass windows with a stylized floral design - quite appropriate for its current use: a flower shop.
