This house is representative of the dwelling erected in this early neighborhood during the last 19th century. The area is distinguished by its views of the Front Range and the curving streets, and early departure from the grid system of the original townsite. Built sometime between 1892 and 1895, the building is vernacular in style.
The first known occupants were Mr. and Mrs. William P. Wight, living here in 1898. Locally significant.
