This two-story galleried Greek Revival residence was built about 1872 by German native William Ahrenbeck (1828-1888). A prominent area civic leader and builder, he also served as postmaster and mayor of Hempstead. His daughter Ella Justine Ahrenbeck (1866-1949) lived here following his death. In 1917 she sold the property to businessman R. R. Urban (1873-1930). Additions to the home, which remained in his family until 1965, were built during his ownership.
