Hannah Swenson, a midwife, built this house in 1890 for $2,000.  She lived here with her husband, Andrew, a tailor, for two years, after which this and the house in the rear were used as rental property.  The property was inherited by their son, Andrew, and his wife, Isabella, in 1900.  They sold the property to Agnes Squires Jones in 1910.  She and her husband, Robert, a blacksmith, occupied the home until 1928 when it was purchased by Alice Homstead, a teacher at Irving Junior High School.  Alice lived here with her mother and sister until her death in 1965.

This historic home is located in the Avenues Historic District in Salt Lake City, Utah.
