Unfortunately it has been altered by the change-out of original windows for vinyl sliders and is therefore not a contributor to the district. The first residents were descendants of early Fresno families: Lesley Einstein was the son of Louis Einstein, Fresno's first Postmaster and Wells Fargo agent.

He had numerous other civic duties and connections
