City of Quitman, DAR teaming for historical restoration project

Posted

The City of Quitman and members of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution are working together to preserve and restore the Honeymoon Cottage and the Ima Hogg museum at the Gov. Jim Hogg City Park in Quitman.

The cottage was built in 1860 on the Gilmer highway at 610 East Goode Street in Quitman.

James Stephen Hogg (1851-1906) bought the house in 1873, and in 1874 married Sarah Ann Stinson. The couple honeymooned in the cottage.

Wood County clubs bought the cottage and moved it to its present location in 1946. It was restored in 1952 by Governor and Mrs. Hogg’s only daughter, Ima Hogg, and a DAR member.

The cottage was opened for viewing during the 4th of July celebration at the Gov. Jim Hogg Park.

Anyone wishing to help with the restoration can contact Linda Haddock 903 569-1434.
