    Significance Statement
    Research indicates that this was the home of silent film actress Colleen Moore. However, the property is not associated with her productive life in the entertainment industry. She moved here in 1929, the same year that sound was introduced to motion pictures. Moore only made three films after 1929; the last in 1934.
