This historic house, built in 1912 is listed on the State Register of Historic Places. The house's construction was experimental. It was built out of concrete. This house was the first all-concrete residential house.
This type of construction using steel molds for the concrete castings, was based on a comprehensive and ambitious plan of the Siegal Cooper Co. to build inexpensive concrete homes for the working people of New York on an 800 acre tract in Hasborough Heights. The steel molds for this construction were invented by Mr. E. D. Lambie of Montclair who had an office at 299 Broadway, New York City.
The innovative construction allowed for rapid construction and no insurance was necessary because of the incombustible quality of the concrete. The outlay for the houses was minimal and the upkeep was inexpensive.
