Significance: The Valdez House, built in 1910, is a superb example of the type of small cottage typical of Brownsville in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The distinguishing feature of this small, clapboard structure is a full-length front porch, its canted pressed-tin roof supported by wood posts topped by semi-circular of fan-like jigsaw brackets, characteristic of Brownsville. Like many similar houses the Valdez House has a two-story addition attached to the rear.
