The 1921 Pulitzer Prize-winning dramatist, author and social activist Zona Gale constructed this house in the Greek Revival style for her parents in 1906. She continued to live here until 1928 when she married William Breese. Upon her death, William Breese deeded the house to the Women's Civic League, which Zona Gale had founded in 1932 to promote education and civic and social improvement.
