Built circa 1892, the Galbraith House is valued as one of New Westminster's finest examples of the Queen Anne Revival style. Popular during the late Victorian era, this style was characterized by asymmetrical, picturesque massing and rooflines, and elaborate surface articulation with a variety of cladding textures including shingles and siding. The design of this house, with its prominent corner turret with an iron finial, hipped roof with lower cross gables and wraparound verandah, was inspired by a design by New York architect H. Hudson Holly, found in a popular pattern book, "Detail, Cottage and Constructive Architecture",
