Historical Background - I.O. Glazier and his wife Clara originally owned this house, built in 1902-03 by Joseph Woodbury. Glazier was a local jeweler and musician. He played the coronet and was active in the First Baptist Church as well as several Masonic organizations. Mr. Glazier lived in the house until his death in 1934 and Clara remained until 1941. Joseph Woodbury was a talented craftsman who built several significant buildings in Greeley, including his residence at 1124 7th Street, the Meeker School in 1872, and Cranford Hall and many more of the original buildings. A prominent citizen in Greeley, Woodbury was active in politics and local organizations, including serving on the town board and later town council and mayor. He served as treasurer of the Society of Union Colony Pioneers. He built the original Meeker School. He was Greeley's first fire chief. According to his 1913 obituary, "He believed in work and work well done and nearly every public building in the city, as well as many private ones, were erected by him."
