Inscription.  
1830 - Part of Nathan Boone's survey of the Commons.

1835 - Included in lease of the Commons by Andrew Wilson.

1939 - Easement for sewer recorded.

The house is believed to have been built at this time as well as the look-a-likes to the north. St. Charles became a center for War related industries in the early years of World War II and small-quick-to-construct houses were needed for the influx of defense workers.

The architectural style of the house is a side gabled National Folk House in he minimal traditionalist style. It is the antecedent of the Post-World-War II modern movement. The floor plan contains a living room, dining room, bedroom, kitchen, and bath with walkout basement to the rear. The total effect is of miniaturization. The metal awnings and wrought iron trim are products of the '50s.

1950 - After being used for investment property, it was sold to Mr. Delton C. Hilderbrand, a Southwestern Bell Telephone repairman and his wife Ruby.

1985 - The present owner secured the property after 35 years of ownership by the first owner/occupant.
