    Significance Statement
    Rare example of early residential development in Palms; property pre-dates surrounding development which primarily dates from the post-World War II period. Residence was constructed as part of a larger estate; it now sits at the rear of property occupied by a Montessori school. Dr. William Ketchum's significance could not be established; therefore, the property was not evaluated for this association.
