1905 St. Paul City Directory. Casiville Bullard (1873-1959) was an African American bricklayer and member of Bricklayers Union Local 1. He moved to St. Paul from Tennessee, where he was born, to work on the Capitol. Bullard was a skilled carpenter as well as bricklayer and he is found in the 1903 City Directory working as a carpenter for Butler Bros. with his name misspelled as "Asahel A. Ballard." In 1903 Bullard was living at 926 Rice St. but by 1905 he had built the house at this address. He and his wife raised a large family here and many descendants still live in the area. The house is on the National Register of Historic Places.
