Home of Union Gen. Edward Henry Hobson, the captor of Gen. John Hunt Morgan at Buffington Island, Ohio

The Federal style house was originally built for Hobson's father, Capt. William Hobson, in 1823. The house is a brick one-and-one-a-half story structure with a central passage. Like many Federal style buildings in Kentucky, this house was updated to reflect the Greek Revival style of the antebellum period with the addition of the four columned portico and other details. The house is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.

This house was the home of Gen. Edward Hobson both before and after the Civil War. After the war, Hobson became a Republican. He was appointed collector of internal revenues for the fourth district by President Ulysses S. Grant and served as vice-president of the 1888 Republican National Convention. He was married to Kate Adair, a niece of Kentucky Governor John Adair.
