Long Description:
In 1833, the property this house is on was bought by John Hopkins who was a civil engineer from Rochester. He came to Lockport to work on the western section of the Erie Canal in the early 1820s. After the canal construction was completed, Hopkins worked as an engineer for the Lockport and Niagara Falls Railroad and the Buffalo and Niagara Falls Railroad. Sometime during the 1830s, Hopkins built this house in the north side of the village. Like many others from the period, the house appears to have been built from scavenged and/or salvaged stone from the excavation of the canal locks.
