Building History

Landscape architect, Thomas Church (1902-1978), collaborated with San Francisco architect Hervey Parke Clark (1899-1982) on the design of the significant Bay Region Modernist garden at the Martin House.

This weekend house stood nearby to the Dearborn Clark House by William W. Wurster (1938).
