Inscription.  Prominent Red Lodge businessman William B. Nutting subdivided this northwestern neighborhood as the Nutting Addition circa 1899. Beginning in 1900 with this home, he built five cottages north of his own residence that became known as Nutting Row. J. S. Robbins, secretary/treasurer of the Carbon Mercantile Company, arranged for Nutting to build this first cottage for him. Rose Robbins bought it for $1500 in 1902. The gable-front residences with a one-story kitchen wing at the back and front porch spanning the front were modest, simply ornamented, well-built homes. Ship-lap siding, a material not often used in the Hi Bug neighborhoods, originally covered all five cottages. The bay window on this home is a unique feature. By 1907, a stable and coal shed had been added to the property and soon after, a north kitchen wing and bedroom enlarged the original floor plan. Among the residents have been the families of Manus Wentworth, W. A. Beans, and M. J. McCabe.
