Notes
Survey number HABS CA-1904
Building/structure dates: 1850 initial construction
Significance: Represents an exotic intrusion into the simple early traditions of the city and is often referred to as the oldest frame house in San Francisco. Its Louisiana oriented ( and it came from the area originally) form provide a rare instance of the central halled house with important veranda and second story balcony, all raised on a high foundation in the manner of the Acadian and Louisiana cottages of the 18th and early 19th century. The addition of fashion oriented slender Tuscan columns or pillars on the first main floor (Classical Revival) and a barge or verge board on the second (Gothic Revival) suggests the desire to produce a vernacular Louisiana house with contemporary ornamental touches.
