This is an example of Queen Anne architecture. The structure’s design integrity has been compromised by some minor additions at the back end, by conversion to duplex use, by replacement of some windows, and by extensive alterations to the cladding system.

This is one of approximately 2,200 houses that are still extant out of more than 5,000 that were built by the end of 1906 in Seattle’s Central Area, Eastlake, First Hill, Leschi, Madison Park, Madrona, and North Capitol Hill neighborhoods. The structure is located in a portion of the Central Area also known as the East Madison district.

The structure has been converted to a duplex at some point since it was surveyed by the Assessor in 1937. There appear to have been several additions at the rear of the structure. Some of the original windows have been replaced with aluminum or vinyl units. The original cladding was replaced or covered with concrete/asbestos siding in the 1950s and some of the original trim work has been lost, particularly at the porch entablature. The entry steps have been altered and the stair sidewalls have been removed. The porch railings have been altered.
