This early house (supposedly built about 1865) was originally located on the southeast corner of 14th Street and Franklin and was relocated to this site by the prominent Astoria banker Frank Patton in 1894.  Patton moved the house in preparation for the construction of a new house he wanted to erect on the lot.  He donated this house to Father Dieleman, pastor of St. Mary’s Church, the pastor lived here until 1900.

The house is a good example of a Queen Anne cottage, a smaller less grandiose version of the Queen Anne Style.  Some of the exterior ornamentation was probably added to the house after it was moved to this site, especially if the house really was constructed around 1865 (a date too early for the beginnings of the Queen Anne style in Astoria).
