When this stately home was built sometime prior to 1870 it lay in the Second Ward which bordered the Third Ward at Elm St.
Wright's 1887-1888 directory lists Edward West, real estate dealer, as resident. The 1893-94 directory has him both living and working at this address. In 1925 William B. Montgomery lived there.
