The Alta Vista Tract was platted in 1911 as a streetcar suburb on either side of the Sunnyside and Recreation Line, which had been extended in about 1907 by Albert Graves Wishon to carry Fresno residents out to Recreation Park. Wishon purchased the first parcels in the new subdivision in 1912, a day after the official annexation, and he completed this beautiful Arts and Crafts inspired residence at the corner of Huntington Boulevard and Sixth Street in 1916. The home was designed by the architectural firm fo Coates and Traver. The redwood tree in the front yard was Fresno's first outdoor lighted Christmas tree in 1917. This property is individually listed in the Local Register of Historic Resources (HP#291)
