Inscription. The Arendt Jensen, Jr. House is a 1-1/2 story bungalow style home and stands near the Arendt Jensen Mansion, the first and largest home built by the Jensen Family.

Completed in 1932, the home was built for Arendt Jensen, Jr. and his wife Minnie Springmeyer, who was from a prominent Carson City family. The home was built on a lot transferred from Arendt Jensen, Sr. to his son. The home also sits between the Jensen Mansion and a home built for Arendt Jensen, Sr.'s parents on the corner.

Arendt Jr. and his wife Minnie worked at the family store on Main Street. Although Arendt Jr. passed on in 1935, Minnie continued to live in the home until 1991.

The home was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1994. The home is now owned by the Chase Family and currently used for professional offices.
