Historic Marker On Site:

History of Mark:
"Built as a rectory for St. Francis Borgia parish. The 1898 Sanborn Map shows the plan shape of the present bldg. with the note "to be parsonage". However, the square main block is shown on the 1893 Sanborn and is probably the parsonage built in 1883. Possibly the two story. 6xl bay facade (with corbelled gable) was added in 1898." ~ Washington Historical Survey  Phase II - III, PDF pages 44-45
