Inscription. Emma Monk came to Arizona Territory to teach school at Fort Thomas in the 1880s. She married William Guild in 1887 and taught school in Florence off and on from 1885 to 1897 and was the first Florence principal. She also taught in Red Rock, Casa Grande and was an instructor at the University of Arizona Preparatory in Tucson and a principal at Clifton. She is considered one of Arizona's mothers of education. Her 1908 home follows the modernism of the era of affordable bungalow housing with its modest proportions, full front porch and a roof line perpendicular to the street. It is built of locally-made brick.
