This English Revival style home was built around 1925 for Thomas and Gertrude Vance. Thomas Vance was an attorney, practicing in the same firm as Frank Christensen, who lived in the Christensen House on the other side of Capitol Way. The well-maintained home is on the local register, and in the South Capitol National Historic District.
