This house at 712 West 14th was built in the 1890s or late 1880s.  From 1905 till about 1935 it was home to the family of John G. Palm, Cashier for State National Bank.  The president of the bank at that time was Eugene Bremond, and the assistant cashier was Eugene's son, Walter Bremond, both of whom lived on the Bremond Block.
