Regarding Muller House. This home was built in 1899 at 129 Front Street by Edward Mahar for his parents who lived in Wilmington. They chose not to move to the new home. Shipbuilder William Muller purchased the home in 1901. In 1912, Muller’s house was relocated to 19th Street and Grand Avenue. In 1986 it was moved to its present location and donated to the San Pedro Bay Historical Society for use as a museum.
