The Dwelling at 707-709 West 12th Street was constructed circa 1911 on the north edge of the top of Mount Oread, at the north end of the University of Kansas campus. Through the years many University of Kansas professors, instructors and students have called the place their home. The historic residential areas surrounding the University of Kansas are rapidly changing with the loss of historic dwellings to significant development pressure and University encroachment.  The rehabilitation of this historic structure for its intended use represents an important effort to stabilize and preserve the historic residential context of the area.
