This modest building was once the home of the famous Washoe Indian basket weaver Louisa Keyser (c. 1861–1925), better known as Dat-SoLa-Lee. Cohn and his wife, Clarisse Amy, collectors of Native American art, promoted Keyser's work and built for her the tiny, one-story, board-and-batten cottage with a gable roof adjacent to their own house. The Washoe Tribe of Nevada and California now owns the building and plans to open a museum in it.
