Wolfe & McKenzie

Designed by Frank Delos Wolfe and constructed circa 1907, the building at 619 North 1st Street is a two-story, Craftsman-style residential building now used as an office building, with a rectangular ground plan, wood frame, wood board wall cladding with a smooth layer of stucco, original wood-sash multi-paned windows, multi-paned entry door, and a gable and hipped roof with wide overhanging eaves and exposed rafter ends. The centered dormer and front gables on the east façade display an Oriental roof line with elaborate and flared fascia. Window detailing on the façade mimics the Oriental peaked roof line. The building displays an asymmetrical façade, and a small wooden staircase leading to an entry door.

Daniel J. Flannery was a deputy internal revenue collector in Santa Clara County at the end of the eighteenth century. In 1899, he married his wife, May Welch, and by 1907 Flannery became the Santa Clara County recorder. At that time, the couple resided at 447 North 1st Street but in 1910 Flannery and his wife moved into the building at 619 North 1st Street. Flannery was the earliest known resident of the building at 619 North 1st Street, having lived there from 1910 until his death in 1930.
