Appearance
The house was built in 1890 (King County Property Record Card; the King County GIS Center Property Report, accessed July 22, 2008, gives the year built as 1900). An early addition is shown on the floor plan sketch provided on the Property Record Card.

The house appears to have been a single family residence when surveyed by the King County Assessor in 1937. It was later converted to a triplex but now functions as a duplex.
