Built in 1883, the house at 453 F Street was originally located at the northwest corner of the block (number 86) which is the southeast corner of 5th and G Streets (Daily Times Telephone, 13 Jan. 1883). It appears to have been moved to its present location in 1941 when the Standard Oil Company con- structed a gasoline station at 5th and G Streets for E.W. Chamber- lain and his son, Byard (Arcata Union, 21 Nov. 1941). This report details the architectural evolution and ownership history of the house.
