Historical Background - The house was originally built in 1904 - 1905 for $4,000 for J.P. Lindahl. It was described the Greeley Tribune at the time as “eight room modern.” The house was originally constructed as a single family dwelling, however, it is currently a multiple dwelling. The house is associated with Albert F. Eaton, a retired farmer who lived there from approximately 1918 until 1939. He was an active member of society, including lifetime membership in Greeley Lodge No. 809. He was also a member of BPOE, the Odd Fellows, and the Greeley Kiwanis Club. Though retired when he lived at 1029 14th Street, he continued to take an active role in farming in the area. Various other residents have occupied the house including, Mrs. W. H. Jacoby, who lived there from approximately 1948 until 1973. John A. Fessenden Insurance occupied the house until the current owners bought it in late 1997.
