2/10/20200 HISTORIC PRESERVATION COMMISSION RECOMMENDED FOR ADOPTION AND ASSIGNED

Minutes note: Ms. Carlen Hatala said the nomination was submitted by the property owner, Thad Nation. This was originally a 50-acre site owned by Bryan Coughlin and this was probably the residential property for the 50 acres. In 1891, a rapid transit line was established by Captain Pabst and his cohorts from downtown to Wauwatosa, which led to rapid development in this area. Mr. Coughlin also built other residential buildings on the 50-acre parcel, but a number of those have been demolished. The house, at the time, was in the Town of Wauwatosa; the city annexed the land in 1910 and Mr. Coughlin became a concerete contractor from 1911 to 1922. In 1945, Jerrold Peever and his wife Jeanette bought the house and he ran his perfume business out of the first floor and the second floor was used as a residence. Mr. Peever eventually married Loretta Coughlin, the single daughter of Bryan Coughlin. The property began changing owners in 1979. Ms. Hatala said the building is a well preserved Classic Queen Anne house and retains many of its architectural details. The garage was built by William Coughlin in 1911. Staff recommends designation based upon e-5, embodiment of the distinguishing characterics of an architectural type or specimen and e-9, its unique location which represens an established and familiar visual feature of a neighborhood, community or the city. Thad Nation - owner of the property since 2007
