    This residence is representative of the Edwardian style of buildings erected in Colorado Springs during the late Victorian era; contributing features include the gabled roof with overhanging eaves, projecting pediment with decorative shingles, double-hung sash windows and transom window with decorative glass, elaborated entrance with paneled and glazed door and sidelights and the bay window.

    The house is associated with the development of the South End neighborhood and the middle class and working families that choose to reside here. The two shotgun houses to the rear of the property also are significant as an early example of low cost housing.

    Built between 1901 and 1907, the earliest known residents were Frank J. and Maude O. Koch; Frank was the proprietor of the cigar store in the Alamo Hotel. Locally significant.
