The Fallon Cottage Annex was one of four properties operated by Anna Loughlin Delaney Fallon Burnett. It was first registered with the T.B. Society as a nursing cottage in mid-1923 by Frieda Cook. Anna Fallon operated the building as a boarding cottage as early as 1928, and bought it in 1937, after which it was operated in conjunction with 33 Franklin Avenue, Anna's home. Patients were served by tray girls from 33 Franklin.

According to the 1916 TB Directory
, the Cook Cottage had room for seven patients, with two cure porches. It was run by Mrs. F.E. Cook. Rates were $18-35 per week.
