Statement of Significance (as of designation - December 29, 1962):
From 1885 until his death in 1918, this one story adobe house was the home of Hubert Howe Bancroft, noted historian of the West. Bancroft's 39 fact-packed volumes, published in San Francisco between 1882 and 1890, maintain their preeminence as the basic authority on the history of Alaska and the western portions of Canada, Central America, Mexico, and the United States.
