George Grigg, who had this house built in 1889, was a wheelwright and coach builder whose family appears to have a long association with North Melbourne (Refer to 139-141 Errol Street). He owned and occupied the house until after 1893 when it passed into the hands of the Australian Widow Fund, no doubt one of the many Friendly Societies operating at the time.
