This home was built by Willard Coburn of Middlesworth Benson & Coburn Company in 1893. it was later bought by John Barton in 1924 when he was only 18, and the Barton family owned it until 1970. Barton served as mayor of Indianapolis from 1964 to 1968 (John Barton Tower – public housing – downtown is named for him). Barton was responsible for converting the house into 4 units in the 1940s.

When renovating the kitchen, found 1942 and 1943 issues of Better Homes & Gardens and Ladies Home Journal in the walls, in perfect condition Barton got in trouble for building the carport using city workers, on city time, in the mid-1960s.
