This house was built about 1909, and is associated with the large frame dwellings with late Victorian features erected in Colorado Springs at the turn of the century. The style is reflected in the decorative shingles, narrow lap siding with corner pilasters, rhyolite foundation, the variety of windows, including oriel windows, windows with leaded glass transoms, and Palladian motif window, and the prominent porch with slender paired columns atop stone pedestals and spindled balustrade. The structure was moved to this site from the site of Grace Episcopal church sometime prior to 1925.
By 1931, this house was the residence of J. M. Vittetoe, a contractor who built the Verner Z. Reed library at the southwest corner of Cimarron Avenue and South Tejon Street. In 1936, he converted it into an apartment building. Locally significant.
