The Queen Anne style house built for George A. Hover in 1908 is the property most closely associated with one of the leading figures in the fruit industry in the Rogue River Valley during the early 20th century.
Hover farmed approximately 140 acres in the Eden Valley district west of Phoenix. His main crops were pears, peaches and prunes. he also grew apples, cherries, almonds and truck garden crops such as potatoes and corn. Hover operated his own prune dryer and packing house on the 80-acre parcel where his house still stands.
