The Craftsman style house was the home of A.C. Johnson, a prominent resident of Whittier as Founder of the Whittier First National Savings Bank and Trustee of Whittier College where Mrs. Johnson was a professor. After the couple's death, the house was deeded to the college. The Johnson's nephew, William H. Harrison, a distinguished architect, purchased the home from the college and leased it back to the school as a coed dormitory until 1965, when he remodeled the house for his family's personal use. The house is located at 6554 Friends Avenue in the historic Uptown neighborhood of Whittier, California.
