This is an early example of the Craftsman style bungalow, built around 1912 for Mrs. Ursula Clark. It was acquired in 1927 by Judge Arthur French who only lived here for three years before his death, an example of a house being named for its most prominent resident rather than its builder or longest-term occupant. It is on the local register and located in the South Capitol National Historic Neighborhood.
