The former owners believed this tiny bungalow is from Sears Roebuck. It is a kit house; however, it is from Gordon-Van Tine. The No. 588 was a small two-bedroom house, about 900 square feet. (Gordon-Van Tine produced an identical house for Montgomery Ward called the Claremont.)

The house was completed in early 1924. The original owners were Fred Meyers, his wife, Ruth, and their newborn Charlotte. Fred was a salesman for a box company in Chicago. By 1930 the Meyers had moved to Indiana.
