Inscription. Construction on this home began in 1917, soon after the property was purchased by R. C. Hopping. Hopping, who earlier had served as Parmer County commissioner and sheriff, sold the property to James and Minnie Aldridge before the home was completed. James Aldridge was elected county sheriff in 1918, and Minnie served as school board president and county treasurer. The house is a four-square plan in design and features a hip roof.
