The house is significant for association with important Nevadan Cada C. Boak who bought the house in 1910 and lived there for the rest of his life. He was involved in mining; and among other public contributions, he served as "a national director" of the Highway 50 Association and both founded and served as president of the Western Good Roads Association. He also rediscovered the Lehman Caves and recommended to President Harding that they be named a National Monument, which Harding did.[2]
