Designed by Omaha architect Frederick A. Henninger, the house is a product of the Georgian Revival style and contains a rare collection of well-preserved landscape and decorative murals painted by artist Gustave A. Fuchs, born and trained in Germany. The house was built in 1902 for Dr. Elmer R. Porter, who established a large medical practice in Omaha. Arthur C. Thomsen, owner from 1923 to 1970, was dean of the University of Omaha Law School, editor of the Night Law Bulletin, and District Court Judge from 1929 to 1958.
