Edward T. Gardner was born January 05, 1861 in Burlington, Iowa. He was the son of ET and Louisa Webster gardener. On June 01, 1900 he joined with E C Gould and formed Gartner in Gould company who manufactured candies and sold confectioners' supplies. The business was located in third Street and Elm. This house was originally a two-story frame Queen Anne structure. The home features a Polygonal turret on the northeast corner, a multi-gabled roofline, a second-floor curved bay front, one first floor bay on the north side, and an oriel window on the east: all contributing to the asymmetrical appearance of the home. The home has been considerably modified. The front porch has been enclosed and the entire house has been covered with a blond brick veneer.
