Label information The Italianate-style Dinglewood home was built in 1857-59 in the then-rural area of Wynnton. Designed by Columbus architects Barringer and Morton, the house was funded by Joel Hurt for his wife Frances and daughter Julia, and built by skilled slaves from his Alabama plantation. In the twentieth century, the house passed through subsequent generations of family and friends, and a neighborhood was carved out of the original 20-acre estate in 1916. The home is now on the National Register of Historic Places.
