This home was built in 1910 using "ornamental concrete block." This man-made material fashioned from portland cement made concrete blocks a strong, inexpensive alternative to brick or stone. This gave famillies of average means the opportunity to build houses of many different styles at a reasonable price.

Other examples of homes constructed from this material are located at 327 S. Walnut St., 329 W. Prospect Ave., 335 W. Prospect Ave., 340 W. Prospect Ave., 339 W. Sixth St., 617 W. Sixth St., and 419 S. State St.

The home was occupied by Andrew W. Finnegan in 1925.
