1897 Queen Anne Victorian home built by banker Alexander Davidson, as a wedding gift for his bride, Laura Tanner. He spent $1,250 for two and a half lots and the cost to build was $12,000. In 1919, it was purchased by Effie Tanner, who was married to Laura Tanner's brother, Leigh Vergne. She paid only $600 for the house. In 1928 Leigh suffered a fatal accident. In 1935 Effie converted it into two apartments. She moved to the second floor apartment and her son Keith and his wife lived on first floor. Later, in the mid 1940's, she put an addition on the house for another apartment. When Effie passed in 1949, her six children inherited the house; but Keith bought the others out for $1.00 each. In 1978 the house was sold and the attic was finished to add a fourth apartment. Jim and Gen Waller bought the house in 1996 in very bad condition. Over several years, they restored the house to single family - saving the house from collapse. In 2006 they sold the house to the Lundbergs who now operate the Waller House Inn. This info comes from their website.
