These well-preserved houses form part of an important neighborhood corner at Rose Terrace and Edgewood Roads.  The houses, of different architectural styles, harmonize well with each other and maintain their original scale fitting the surrounding neighborhood.  Both houses were built for D. P. Pierson and designed by Alfred Granger, whose work in Lake Forest also includes City Hall, the downtown depot, and several other houses including his own on Sheridan Road north of the Presbyterian Church.
