The two large oak trees that lent their presence to the naming of this house have been damaged and subsequently cut down because of a windstorm. The house has significant history because it was built in the early part of the twentieth century for a Mrs. Glenn whose son, Frank was a student at Kentucky Military Institute. The Institute was located just off Sarno Road, on the south shores of the Eau Gallie River, west of the railroad tracks.

In the period of about 1917-1920, Mrs Glenn's niece, Jean Faircloth, lived here during the winter months. In 1935 Jean Faircloth became the second wife of General Douglas MacArthur, leader of the allied forces in the Pacific during World War II.
