Foster House (303 North Hervey Street, Hope, Arkansas)

The Foster House is a historic house at 303 North Hervey Street in Hope, Arkansas. The two-story wood frame house was designed by Charles L. Thompson and built c. 1912. It is a fine local example of Bungalow/Craftsman style, with flared eaves and a full-length front porch supported by box columns, which are, in a Thompson signature, clustered in threes at the corners. The porch roof, dormer, and eave have classic Craftsman features, including exposed rafters and brackets. It is one of three Thompson designs in Hope.

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982, and was delisted in 2019.
