Edificación Decimonónica
Es una muestra típica de las casas potosinas de la época del porfiriato, que se caracterizaron por tener el nivel de piso interior elevado con respecto al nivel de la calle para dar cabida al sótano; esta señorial residencia contó con un denso jardín en la parte frontal y ha servido como escenario para varias filmaciones y algunas películas proyectadas en cine. En uno de los muros se encuentra labrado el año de su construcción que data de 1896.
