1895

— City of Berkeley Landmark - Designated 1991 —

This building was originally part of the small commercial district that grew up around Dwight Way Station where Shattuck Avenue commuter trains intersected with the horse-car line that ran up Dwight Way to the California Schools for the Deaf and Blind (now the University of California's Clark Kerr Campus). Owner Glennie Davis constructed the original building which had residential rooms above storefronts.

After nearly a century of residential and commercial use, this building was bought with City assistance, remodeled in 1992, and enlarged in 1998. The rear section of the building was demolished and rebuilt, but the original facade has been preserved and restored.
