Burmister/Storey residence, Prescott, Arizona.

The house, located at 109 South Pleasant Street is a one and half story wood frame structure of asymmetrical massing on an irregular floor plan. Roofs are both hipped and gabled. First story exterior walls are sheathed with horizontal siding, upper surfaces are covered with shingles of various configuration. The porch is supported with columns of classical simplicity. Wtih the exception of new roofing materials and a monochromatic paint scheme the building appears today much as it did in 1901.

This building was built by W. C. Bashford as a rental unit. The first occupants were Mr. & Mrs. Howard Burmister, the son and daughter-in-law of Robert H. Burmister. In 1912 the property was purchased by Mary Isis West who sold it a year later to Mr. & Mrs. Harvey C. Storey.

Storey was the Local superintendent of the Santa Fe Railroad branch line between Prescott and Phoenix. He was born on October 25, 1861, in Wisconsin to Clark Storey and Mary McDonald. He died on November 22, 1921, in an automobile accident three miles north/east of Wickenburg, Arizona. The residence, which is known in association with the Storey family, is an excellent example of early twentieth century housing for upper middle class citizens of Prescott.  The above information was obtained from the Arizona Historic Property Inventory.
