Firm: Rule Wynn and Rule

Address: 801 Hillcrest Avenue SW

Date of final plans: July 1947

Status: standing; altered beyond recognition

The Hazelton C. Moore House is a modest post-War bungalow in Mount Royal. It distinguishes itself from tract homes of the era by its angled floorplan and varied roofline. At the rear of the house the grade drops a floor and a driveway leads from the alley to a basement garage.

The Moores only lived in the Hillcrest house until 1954, when they retired to Vancouver. In 1991 the house was altered beyond recognition, however, the original footprint is still clearly visible. I can't tell whether the house was demolished down to the foundation and rebuilt, or whether the second floor was added to the first.



Hazelton Clifford Moore (1892-1973) was born on 25 July 1892 in St Marys, Ontario to James Moore and Catharine Johnston, the youngest of 10 children. In World War I he served overseas from 1915 to 1918. Moore married Nellie Hazell (1894-1987), with whom he had three children: Hazell, Marion, and Audrey. In the 1940s Moore was the manager of Standard Building Supplies, whose office was located at 1335 10 Avenue SW.
