The Other Goldman D Street Residence

On May 29, 2013, I gave a talk at the Petaluma Library called The Genealogy of a House: A Case Study. We had 82+ attendees. It was great to see so many people interested in Petaluma history, genealogy and architecture.

The focus of the case study was a Dutch Colonial Revival styled house built in 1927 and located at 517 Oak Street, Petaluma.

As part of the presentation I showed images of other homes built during the same period including a Spanish Revival bungalow at 1014 D Street that was built by Walter Singleton, the same contractor who built 517 Oak Street.

According to a Petaluma Daily Courier article, Mose Goldman, a local department store owner, hired Singleton in June of 1927 to build a new house on his (Goldman's) D Street property situated just east of Laurel Avenue.

This home was to be a much more modest affair than Goldman's previous residence located at 831 D Street which was designed by San Francisco architect Sylvain Schnaittacher in 1924.

Mose and his wife Lena sold 831 D Street to Leo Bourke, owner of the Must Hatch Hatchery before moving into 1014 D Street which may have been more modest in size than 831 D Street, but it clearly lacked nothing when it came to craftsmanship and character which can be seen up close this Saturday, June 15th when an open house is scheduled from 1 PM and 4 PM. Yes, this jem is for sale!
