Arthur and Jeanette Dunn bought 10 acres of land in the Broadview section of Seattle in 1914, and commissioned the Olmsted Brothers to layout a landscape plan to surround a summer house. The Olmsted firm produced a planting plan by spring 1916.

James Frederick Dawson of the Olmsted Brothers office designed the landscape plans for the adjoined Dunn and Agen properties.

The original shingled summer house, designed by Seattle architects, Bebb and Gould, was demolished in 1949.
