In 1998, the 130-year-old Commodore James T. Watkins house was moved from 25 Isabella Ave. to 96 Alejandra Ave. in Atherton by new owners David and Rhoda Herron.

The house was cut into two pieces and placed on long steel beams for the trip to its new address.

The home is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is shown at its current location on Alejandra Avenue.
