Colonial Revival in Forest Hills
Constructed in 1932, this house was designed by the Lafaye & Lafaye architectural firm in the Colonial Revival style. The house was built for Paul Anderson Cooper (1889 — 1956), who served as Columbia city attorney for 23 years, and his wife, Margaret (1893—1986). It features a side-gabled roof and a symmetrical design flanked by a side-gabled porch and a two-story wing. The Colonial Revival style was quite popular in the 1930s and is demonstrated in many homes in the Forest Hills neighborhood.
