Mary Chapin Anderson and Andrew Anderson had this house built between 1875 and 1877 after Mary inherited her portion of the family estate. By that time, Anderson had become a well known trial attorney, who had practiced with Thomas Stanfield, Willis Bugbee and his son-in-law, James DuShane. He was also an early enlistee in the Civil War, served as a State Senator in 1862 and founded the Saint Joseph County Law Library. Four generations of the Anderson-DuShane family have lived in this Italianante home. Mary Anderson's granddaughter, Mary DuShane, lived here until her death in 1962. At some point the house was turned to face Park and moved to its present location.
