Charles R. & Hazel F. Gillman House
(263 West 1600 North)


Charles R. & Hazel F. Gillman House

The Charles R. and Hazel F. Gillman house is a single story brick hall-parlor house built ca. 1908. It had two major additions, ca. 1935 and ca. 1975. The original house has Victorian Eclectic style details such as relieving arches over all of the windows, a transom over the large single pane fixed window on the gable end, and wooden sash double-hung windows on the east elevation. James H. Gillman purchased ten acres of land in 1905 and three years later transferred the title of a portion of that land, which now contains the house, to his son, Charles R. Gillman. Charles built the house ca. 1908-9. Charles was educated in the Orem schools and had a reputation throughout the Western states as a fruit grower. He owned and operated a store in Orem for many years and served as chief deputy county assessor. Charles Gillman was also active in politics and was a Democratic precinct chairman in Orem for several years.
