Charles C. Crismon purchased this property from Franklin R. Snow in Spring of 1905. He had his home built the fall of that year and took up residency there in 1906. Franklin Snow was a Salt Lake contractor and it is possible that he built the Crismon home. Charles was born in 1875. He attended the University of Utah and the University of Geneva in Switzerland.

After graduation free the latter he returned to Utah to start the firm of
Crismon & Nichols. The assaying firm was one of the first established in Salt Lake and was Important in certifying many of Utah’s major ore discoveries. Charles was married in 1905 to Gertrude Mayer of Silver City, Idaho.

In 1929 Gertrude sold the home to Mable J. Paul.
