The Jensen Family emigrated from Denmark in the late Nineteenth Century. As Gardnerville grew, Arendt Jensen, Sr. took advantage of the growing economy becoming a successful businessman and banker.

The Jensen Family's merchandise store was located on main street along the main stage and freight line. Douglas County Farmer's Bank started by Jensen was the first bank in the Carson Valley.

Owning much of the land in this general area, Jensen conveyed some parcels to family members as the Jensen family grew. This brick bungalow was constructed for Jensen's parents in 1916.

The home is now owned by the Dr. Michael Fisher Family and is used as a professional dental practice.
