This gable-to-street house features several Bungalow features, and may have originally had a full-width porch.

The Bungalow-style house at 1685 Farmington Avenue was probably constructed in 1925 by Harry S. Robertson, as land records show a sewer line construction to the river behind it in that year. Shortly after construction, Edward Saling, president of Saling Manufacturing, purchased the house and resided in it until 1934.
