Dr. Geral Bliss and his wife occupied the house from 1891 until 1945.  The architects employed an exuberant expression of the Queen Anne style for the residence with its brick lower level; upper level floors covered in fish scale shingles; and the combination of bays, unusual windows, and a dramatic multi-planed roof.  The property is associated with the West Colfax Subdivision Historic Structures Thematic Resource.
