Built in 1913, it is a two-and-a-half-story wood frame house built on a native stone foundation. It was the first house built on Thorburn Avenue, on the west slope of Mt. Tabor, in an area which eventually developed into a fine residential neighborhood. It has an expansive view across the valley of the Willamette River to Portland's west hills.
The house is said to have been built to plans from Switzerland, and to have met a request of Bolina Jacobs to her son Frederick Alva Jacobs.
