Significance: The dwelling is a contributing element to the Uptown New Orleans Historic District. The Uptown District is significant on a state level for its diverse architectural collection of dwellings that were constructed during the period from ca. 1820-1935. The two-story Queen Anne residence, constructed ca. 1890, was the first single-family residence on the 1800 block of Calhoun Street. OF the district's total 10,716 buildings, approximately 674 were designed in the Queen Anne Style. This house illustrates the diversity of residential architecture constructed during the later phase of the district's development.
