Among early residents were J. Stuart Blackton, a pioneering force in motion pictures, and his fourth wife, actress Evangeline Russell.

Along with the entertainment industry, households also were evolving about the time the Craftsman house was being built. Refrigerators were starting to replace ice boxes, vacuum cleaners were catching on and Maytag had invented a washing machine with an agitator.

White picket fencing, an arbor, a gated driveway and mature landscaping add to the curb appeal.
