This Colonial Revival house was built for Robert and Irene Connor, daughter of lumber magnates Anna and Cornelius Collins who lived next door. Irene took over the position of vice-president of the family firm. The house is significant for its association with the Connor and Collins families, and as one of a group of three family homes in close proximity (640, 646, and 704 E. Gorham) representing a pattern of family living that was common at the turn of the century. The architect is unknown but the design is attributed to Claude and Starck, the firm that designed the other two Collins homes.
