Designed in the Chateau-style by the architectural firm of Andrews, Jacques & Rantoul, the Hooper Mansion was one of the largest Buildings in the Back Bay when it was constructed in 1889. The mansion was commissioned as the private residence of Robert C. Hooper and his wife, Helen Angier (Ames) Hooper. A noted dog lover, Hooper imported an English bull/bull terrier mix from England that he named Judge. “Hooper’s Judge”, as the dog came to be known, is credited as the originator of the Boston Terrier breed.
