Dating back to 1819, when Alexander Thompson constructed a modest two-and-a-half-story building, this home served as the residence of Archibald Sommerville, a Scottish settler. In 1852, the property underwent a transformation under the ownership of William B. Howenstine, its second proprietor. The building was expanded to four stories, reflecting the Federal architectural style, and various brownstone additions were incorporated. Over time, the property changed hands and in 1903, New York County Sherriff William F. Grell, the third owner, introduced a restaurant on the ground floor while utilizing the upper levels as a personal residence. Notable enhancements and features encompass the repointed facade, replaced sidewalks with newly planted trees, a water ejector system linked to a three-sump pump system for flood prevention.
