It is a historic house that was formerly listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Its listing status changed in 1975. This was due to the house being sold by Sidney and Eleanor Hope's estate after an attempt to have it purchased and restored by a local historical group failed because of lack of funds. It was demolished the same year by its new owners, who built condos on the rear of the lot and a house of a similar plan on the front of the lot. (en)
