Architectural firm Bradbeer and Ferris designed this two-and-a-half story residence for William and Sarah Cockins, who resided in the dwelling from 1891 until 1903. It was divided into a duplex in 1911, and later transitioned to become a rooming house. In 1997, the nearby University of Southern California (USC) remodeled the residence to become its Center of Occupation and Lifestyle Redesign.
