The house was purchased in 1923 by Mr. And Mrs. Henry Luke Warburton, Sr. (son of Dr. Henry H. Warburton, Santa Clara's first doctor). H. L. Warburton was a prominent local resident involved in both the Mission Bank and the Santa Clara branch Fof the Mercantile Trust Company. Mary was a founding member of the Santa Clara Women's Club. Henry and Mary Warburton had 4 children, Henry Luke Jr., Marie, Austen, and Rollo.

Marie Warburton became a local elementary school teacher and educated many Santa Clara residents in her lifetime: She helped change school board policy in 1937 when she refused to quit her job after marrying Dr. Robert J. Rogers.
