The King County Property Record Card suugests that William L. Thrailkill acquired the property in 1935. However, Thrailkill erected a garage at the back of the lot in 1925 and is listed as the property owner on the construction permit, indicating that he actually acquired the property much earlier.

Weber in 1958, The current owners bought the property from Daniel Kowalski and Rebecca Henderson in 2001, who purchased the property from Steven and Elizabeth Guffey in 1996.
