This area is named after the 1824 Scottish settler James Hogg, who owned a whisky distillery and a gristmill. His sons later divided the area into lots where most of the homes were built between 1920 and 1960. Today, it is an area that boasts some of the most grandiose homes you dream of finding in fairy tales with styles like English Cottage, Tudor and Colonial.
