Ross Sterling-Mike Hogg Mansion At 4410 Yoakum Blvd.

Recommended Posts

In 1917, Ross Sterling was building a mansion in Montrose located at 4410 Rossmoyne Street (later Yoakum Boulevard.) Mike and Ima Hogg needed a place to live while their Bayou Bend estate was being built.   Ross Sterling leased the property to the Hoggs for a few years.

When Mike Hogg left the property for Bayou Bend, another oilman moved in. Walter Benona Sharp. In 1902, Sharp, Ed Prather, and Howard Hughes Sr., founded the Moonshine Oil Company.

University of Saint Thomas owned the property for decades up until demolition.  The building had numerous names, including Second Women's Residence, and Spiritual Hall.

Sadly was demolished for a few 3-story luxury town homes.
