”412, 414, 416, 418, 420 Lincoln, Queen Anne, Ca. 1894
A row of five attached houses, each individually designed yet forming a coherent and harmonious group. This is an exceptionally fine example of a rare building type which is almost non-existent in the West. Even in San Francisco most row-housing is detached. The ground floor is designed with alternating entrance porches and bay windows, and there is a gabled bay over each ground floor bay in the shingled second floor.
[Architectural Significance as an Example of its Style:] Exceptional.”
