This 1898 structure was designed by Lucien Plympton (Lucian Plimpton) of Buddemeyer, Plympton, Trowbridge architects of Cincinnati and built by
Judge John Hodge, son of general George Baird Hodge and grandson of Newport founder General James Taylor. 

Judge Hodge lived in the home for 33 years, with his first wife Virginia Lovell, daughter of Howard Lovell, a tobacco merchant Covington, then with his second wife Grace Weitzel Stewart, niece of Cincinnati Standard Oil magnate Alexander McDonald.  Judge Hodge was a graduate of the Cincinnati School of Law and became a district court judge in Newport.

The Swiss Alpine architecture encompasses 6,400 square feet of living space, currently used as primary living on the first two floors with a “mother-in-law” suite on the second floor, and a third floor apartment in the former attic.  The home has been restored to much of its original floor plan,  architect Jim Price consulting.
