Context: The floor plant for 921 Court changed radically between the 1903 and 1911 Sanborn Insurance Maps, indicating a new home was built during that time period. The Arthur and Mary Armson family lived in the previous and current dwellings on that lot from 1893-94 to the mid 1920s. Arthur was a marine engineer and died shortly after 1921. His widow Mary continued on for a few years.
