Though born in Los Angeles, Earl Warren, who would serve as Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court, lived for a number of years in Oakland. He was appointed Alameda County District Attorney in 1925, and was elected to the office in his own right in 1926, 1930, and 1934.

Warren moved into the house on Vernon Street in 1934. He lived at the residence until he was elected governor in 1942; he left Oakland to move into the Governor's Mansion the following year. He was elected governor for three successive terms (1942, 1946, and 1950); he was the only Californian to do so.

Currently, 88 Vernon Street is home to Clausen House, an organization which provides services to developmentally delayed adults. The organization was founded in 1967, and includes three other group homes and apartments for its clients. 

The Warren home was named an Oakland Landmark in 1979.; Retrieved 16 April 2017.
