Frank and Gladys Dangler received the French Manor chateau-style stucco home on July 1, 1921, as a wedding present from Gladys’s father, Walter Cottingham. The bride’s father had split subplot 6 east of his own in half with 9913 fronting on Lake Shore Boulevard. The house was situated on over an acre and a half with a lake view and tall, shading trees.

The outside entrance had a welcoming large ironworks on either side of the door with iron grillwork on the windows above. Inside featured a large, tiled vestibule and spacious center hall. A library was to the rear of the entrance and the living room to the right of the entrance. Off the kitchen were a pantry and a servant’s dining room. There were five bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms, and two maid’s rooms with a bathroom. When the house was built, garages were on the property across the street.
