The following is from the 2018 plaque presentation:

Architect Warren Skilling of San Jose designed the house for H.J. and Agnes Moule. Mr. Moule was a retired investor from Cleveland, Ohio. Their sons Manley and Richard graduated from Stanford in economics, classes of 1917 and 1926, respectively. The house cost $6,425 when built. In 1936, the owner was Eleanor Black, widow of John. In 1946, the owners were Archer D. and Janette G. King. The current owners are Richard and Joanne Saxon.
