Mary Ellison intended to develop the surrounding area with vacation homes for wealthy northerners, and the oak trees that form the tree tunnel on 12th Avenue were planted for that purpose. However, the plan was scrapped when economic conditions soured, and the area was eventually developed as the Cordova Park neighborhood.
In the 1940s the home was owned by Philip G. and Eleanor DuPont Rust of Wilmington, Delaware. It was demolished in (date needed).
