Following his marriage in 1895 to Annie MacGregor Stewart of Savannah, Georgia, Charles Lukens Hustonhad this home built in 1896. The house was designed by Cope & Stewardson, Philadelphia architects whowere responsible as well for his brother's Graystone Mansion directly across the street. The home was theresidence of Mr. & Mrs. Charles Lukens Huston or the remainder of their lives.

A grandson of Charles and Rebecca Lukens, Charles Lukens Huston attended Haverford College and,following his graduation in 1879, entered the family partnership with his father and older brother. Uponincorporation of the business in 1890, Mr. Huston became Senior Vice President and Works Manager.During his long tenure of 75 years, Mr. Huston was responsible for many technological developments inthe plant, including the development of the 4-high 206" rolling mill.

Comfortable rather than grand, the house served for several years as Coatesville headquarters of theChild Evangelism Foundation under the direction of Charles Lukens Huston's daughter, Miss Ruth Huston.
