The Oakland-Hawaiian architect Charles W. Dickey (1871-1942) designed this residence for Charles D., Jr., and Lucrezia Bates, one of the first houses in the Adams Point tract. This area grew in size following the San Francisco Earthquake of 04/18/1906, when thousands of displaced San Franciscans relocated to Oakland and other cities in Alameda County. The Bates House had a two-floor plan, with an unornamented, stucco-faced exterior. The house was covered by a hipped roof which had a significantly overhanging eaves supported by prominent rafters. The house was completed in mid-07/1907.
