This house is associated with the development of the Boulder Crescent neighborhood, noted for its curving streets and triangular-shaped park. The house represents a small vernacular version of a gambrel roof Shingle Style house. In addition to this shingled walls and gambrel roof, the house is notable for its battered stone porch pier and triple window. The foundation is split fieldstone.
Constructed sometime between 1900-07, the house was occupied in 1910 by Ben B. and Marietta Schock; Ben was an embalmer with the Hallett & Baker Undertaking Company. Later, Frank C. and Olive W. Hammer owned the house. Mr. Hammer served as organist for St. Mary's church for 48 years. Locally significant.
