The Hitchcock House was built in 1912 as part of the first wave of residential development in the College Hills Tract subdivision. It is significant as a product of early twentieth century urban planning and expansion of an upper middle class suburban residential district in the Honolulu community of Manoa. The house is also significant as as a representative example of a simple Prairie School style house built in Hawaii in the early twentieth century. It features a hipped roof with overhanging eaves, and inset porch which serves as the focal point of the front facade.
