The 1897 brochure lists this house as the residence of N. Webster Chappell.

Though not listed as the architect on the permit, N. W. Chappell did design at least twenty houses, most in old Tenleytown.

Without the front porch and the shutters shown in the 1897 picture the house looks quite different today.

Chappell must have attracted some attention in 1910 when he became the first car owner in Tenleytown! (Helm, p. 155)
