(Below in italics is from the National Register listing; not verified for accuracy by this author.)

J. Fred Christian, son of J. T. Christian who built 704 Shepherd St., constructed this one-story frame house in the 1900s. Originally irregularly shaped, house was altered to its present regular two-room-deep configuration with a gambrel roof around 1920. The original turned balusters recall the initial construction date. Christian succeeded his father as president of the Christian Printing Co.

1928 resident: Mrs. LA Poe
