Moved twice from its first location on W. Stayton Avenue, the house of Ed Linn—an Irish immigrant, De León colonist, and surveyor of the 1839 town plan of Victoria—is a side-gabled cottage with a double-pitched roof sloping over a six-bay front veranda. It is a good example of one of the vernacular cottage types most characteristic of Victoria.
