Edward Elliot and Charles H. Hopson partnered to form Elliot and Hopson, Architects in 1895, Halifax, Nova Scotia. The firm moved to the new Harrison Building on Barrington St. In 1896. Introducing the latest American styles, the firm executed a number of commissions for important residences in Halifax: the H. B. Clarke mansion, the Simon Holmes’ on South Park St., and the “Lindola” granite mansion on Young Ave., built for the Hobreckers in 1901 in teh Richardson Romanesque style. They also designed new buildings in Windsor, Sydney, and Truro, including the New Science Building (currently home to the Colchester Historical Society Museum and Archives) on Young Street in 1901.
Elliot’s death in 1901 caused the dissolution of the firm, and C. H. Hopson, with his brother, the engineer Edward G. Hopson, became the successors in the Hopson Bros. partnership.
