Significance: This residence was built in the early 1920s as a part of "Alameda Court," a typical middle-class residential tract developed by Christopher Cook (President of the Cook Lumber Company) in conjunction with realtor John Phelps and Thomas C. Barnett. Designed in the prevailing as Spanish Colonial Revival style and priced from $5500 to $6500, the modest, yet comfortable "bungalow homes" appealed to San Jose's newly-prosporous white collar class. Alameda Court's first residents included department store managers, insurance agents, automobile salesmen and the like, together with a sprinkling of professional people and skilled factory workers.
