William Shannon lived in this house from 1909 to 1928.
In the late 1920s, the house became a rooming house.
In May 1959, a house-wrecking firm demolished the house.
In the fall of 1959, a new apartment building appeared on the site. Early advertising called it “The Impala.”
By December 1959, the building was called “The Eland.”
It later became “The Esplanade.”
