Benjamin Hughs was a successful merchant in the town of Clarksville, Missouri. Located on banks of the Mississippi River assured its early economic boom. By 1860 Hughs had accumulated sufficient wealth to build a fine home on a hill above his prosperous town. An impressive brick home in the popular Greek Revival style with an elegant two story portico provided magnificent views of his town and the Mississippi. The quality home resisted the ravages of time and weather. Updating for modern living did not diminish its elegant interiors that boasted original architectural details. Upgrades in the mechanical systems,wiring, plumbing, and central heat and air conditioning made the home more satisfactory for modern living. The exterior
