Begun in 1885, this adobe house was completed in February 1886 by Hiram Bradford Farmer. Professor Farmer was the first principal and sole instructor of the newly founded Territorial Normal School, now Arizona State University. Unofficially the building served as the first dormitory since Mrs. Farmer accepted women students as boarders. In 1902 the property was sold to Mrs. James C. Goodwin.

The building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
