This gabled-front extended shotgun cottage is one of two identical tenant houses which Francois Tajan, a French immigrant, built at 1808 and 1810 State Street in about 1892. Each one had a shed and a privy. Tajan owned 1808 State until 1920. Tajan built 6 other tenant houses on the east end of the 1800 block of State Street.
