Property History per the Berkeley Historical Society:

According to the Berkeley Historical Society, 1813 Eighth Street is known as the Buchele House and is important as a sample of period architecture in the history of West Berkeley. The property was purchased by Gustav Buchele, a San Francisco stone cutter, in 1896. It is possible the house may have been moved to its current location as the style is close to the square Italianate cottages of the 1870's. He continued to own the house into the 1920's. Although this house’s immediate surroundings are still residential, the commercial activity of Delaware Street nearby has changed quite a bit, even to the elimination of the local rail line up Delaware from the 3rd Street tracks to 9th. At one time nearby Delaware and 6th was bustling with shops and community halls. This was the real center of town.
