Inscription. The western portion of this adobe brick house was built for Frank and Isabella Cosgrove in 1878. It was originally constructed with dirt floors, roof and a Sonoran corner fireplace.

During the 1890s, Theophile Nicholas "Americanized" the structure by adding the central portion of the lean-to and a shingled, gabled roof.

Between 1898-1911 a brick veneer with window and door archways modernized its appearance, and a garage was added after 1916.
