Built in 1917, the Loomis-Parry Residence is located north of downtown Augusta in a neighborhood of large late 19th- and early 20th-century single-family residences. Widower Henrietta Loomis commissioned the construction of the house for herself and her daughter Grace. The Loomis family, traditionally farmers, owned land in Butler County where oil was discovered in the early 1900s. Income generated from the oil financed the construction of this residence in Augusta. No reference to the architect or builder has been found in local histories, newspapers, or family documents. Nevertheless, the house's architecture features a distinct combination of several popular early 20th century styles including Craftsman, Tudor Revival, and Classical Revival. It has remained in the same family since 1917, and is nominated for its architecture.
