    David S. and Elizabeth Salisch, occupants in 1910, earned their living as tailors with their own shop. By 1931 the building was being used a rooming house, and it was later converted to apartments. In 1965, it contained 19 apartment units. The house has a large two-story addition at the rear, as well as a one-story addition. The exact date of these additions is unknown, but they were completed before 1962.

    This building is one of the early 20th century dwellings in the Boulder Crescent neighborhood that quickly converted to multi-family uses, serving first as a rooming house and then as apartments. The house, although altered, displays features of Edwardian design, including its asymmetrical composition, multiple gables, variety of windows, elaborated entrance, and porch with pedimented entrance and classical columns. Locally significant.
