Built for Catherine Lipsius, widow of Claus Lipsius ([ibib]856[/ibib] page#). The Claus-Lipsius Brewery, also designed by Engelhardt, was located at Forrest Street and Bushwick Avenue, with bottling facilities at Garden Street adn Bushwick Avenue. The Lipsius house is often (and incorrectly) described as the William Ulmer residence - Ulmer's residence (now demolished) was across the street at 680 Bushwick Avenue.
