Significance: Hugh Morrison cites the Heath residence as evidence of the strong influence of H. H. Richardson's architecture on the work produced by Adler and Sullivan during the late 1880's. The row house facade is indeed a fine design in the Richardsonian manner of that period, "although totally unlike any other residence designed by Adler and Sullivan."
