National Register of Historic Places in Sacramento County
The Edward P. Howe House embodies the distinctive characteristics of early 20th century residences built for affluent Sacramentans.
This home, situated on a large lot of nearly one-third acres but located less than one mile from the State Capitol and the city's commercial core, typifies a period of suburban-like living in America in the years following the development of effective streetcar transportation and before the widespread use of the automobile.
The Colonial Revival design and the generous use of shingles reflect the architectural fashions of the time for substantial residential construction in Northern California.

When we photographed the Howe House in 2006, it was occupied by offices.
