The Patton House is prominently located on its almost four-acre site. The most prominent characteristic of the exterior is the large, deep porch with circular ends. The flat roof over the porch is supported by paired Tuscan columns. The significance of the Patton House is based both on its architecture and its association with Harold V. Patton. Patton is best known as being one of the main movers and shakers of economic life during the early twentieth century in Hilo. Architecturally, this house is an excellent example of an affluent Hilo residence built during this time period.
