Built by Hampton Hendrix, a prominent Leesville businessman, for use as a home office, this building is one of the few nineteenth century separate home office buildings remaining in the area. Constructed ca. 1897, this decorated Victorian rectangular weatherboard building, approximately ten by eighteen feet, displays a gabled metal roof and highly decorative fašade centered by a single door with upper glass pane. The pedimented front gable is ornamented by sawtooth trim, with an entrance porch detailed by a pierced frieze, and supported by bracketed and turned front corner posts. Pierced side balustrades ornament the lower porch, above its wood plank floor. The building is set on a lattice brick curtain wall. Fenestration consists of two single four-over-four windows on each side with original moveable blinds. Listed in the National Register July 6, 1982. It has since been moved.
