Significance: This home is one of the hidden gems of west side Galt. Built between 1916 and 1918 for R.A. Briscoe, the local dry goods merchant founded the business that went on to become the Right House.

It is also distinguished by the heavy half-beams and stucco finish and the cast stone trim on the foundation and at window level.
