The colonial style home was originally built in 1890 as a one and a half story, single-family residence. A major hurricane hit Galveston in 1900 and floated the house off its foundation. The original house was raised up high enough to build a complete new level underneath. Upon completion in 1906, this multi-family home became a two and a half story structure. The front of the house took on the colonial look with a front porch on each level and four large columns on both levels.
