Built in 1918


This cottage was built for Frank W. Bowers and his wife, Florence, at a cost of $2,500. Mr. Bowers worked as a clerk at Thoits shoe store. Wallace Denny and his wife, Nellie, owned the house 1924-1935. He was an athletic trainer for Stanford, and worked with Glenn “Pop” Warner; he followed Warner to Temple University, but returned to the Bay Area and died here in 1955. Later occupants were George W. and Josephine G. Johnson, (Johnson was a window trimmer for JF Hink & Son); W.H. and Doris Jones; Ray F. Robinson; and Craig A. Blyth. The current owner is Nancy Merritt, who purchased the property in 1984.
