After the suicide of her husband, Rebecca Brown put forward a homestead claim on the house at 400 W. 11th Street in May of 1901, almost 106 years ago to date. What is interesting about this is that Alice Hubbard, who would later own the house, was one of the witnesses to the homestead claim. In May of 1901 Miss Hubbard had only been living in Vancouver for three months. Click to enlarge.
