This Victorian eclectic house was built in 1898 by Lillias Hilton Staines after having inherited the property in 1892 from her grandfather, John Lyon, an early Utah poet. Lillias and her husband, William C. Staines, a mining entrepreneur, maintained this house as rental property. In 1922, their son, Fred Chisholm Staines, vice-president of Whitmore Oxygen Company, inherited the home. He and his wife, Carol, moved into part of the home, maintained the rest as rental property, and lived here until 1936. Dirk and Hesselina Oliekan bought the home in 1942 and, with other family members, occupied the various apartments within the house.
This historic home is located in the Avenues Historic District in Salt Lake City, Utah.
