Robert Garrett, prominent financier and businessman, built the first part in 1884, designed by McKim, Mead and White. His widow, who married Dr. Henry Barton Jacobs, added the second part c. 1905, designed by John Russell Pope, and c. 1916 acquired an adjoining property, demolishing a portion of the building thereon.
