From the B&B history:

The Goodman House is a colonial revival foursquare home built in 1906 by Horace Goodman at the corner of 4th Avenue on the Esplanade in Chico, CA.

Horace’s family resided in the home until his death in 1917. The next residents were George Vogelsang, his wife Erin, and four daughters. Thirty-nine years later, George fell to his death on the steep, dark staircase at 90 years of age. George’s daughter Retta, who had cared for her elderly father, remained in the house until her death in 1973. In 1974 the house was purchased from the Vogelsang estate and became law offices. The building was again sold in 2002 and converted to a Bed & Breakfast by Tom and Margo Graham.
