This house, overlooking Columbia Park, was buit by William C. Stitsel in 1933, or possibly 1934, for his sister Lulu F. Evans. Lulu Evans was born in Seymour, Iowa in 1876. She moved to Seattle in 1903 with her husband Harry Evans, who died in 1930. The Evans lived down the street from the subject property, at 4739 36th Avenue South. According 1930s city directories, Lulu F. Evans was a factory worker. Evans used the house as a rental property. When she died in 1958, the ownership of the property transferred to her daughter Doris Evans Dimock. The Evans family owned two properties overlooking Columbia Park.
This intact single story vernacular house is of wood frame construction and is supported by a post and pier foundation. The house has a rectangular plan and a front gable roof form. The house is clad primarily in rustic drop siding. An offset small gable roof, supported with brackets, covers the front entrance. The gable end of the porch roof is clad in wood shingles. The porch roof was originally supported with simple wood posts. The fenestration consists of one-over-one single hung windows with simple surrounds. Two windows are located on the front elevation and flank the front entrance.
