Branscombe House
branscombe houseBranscombe House is one of the earliest homes built in Steveston and is significant for its historical association to the development of Steveston, both as a residential building and through its connection to the Branscombe family’s general store located in downtown Steveston. It reflects the pattern of commercial and related residential development that occurred early in Steveston’s history.

Aesthetically, the Branscombe house is important as a very good example of the Edwardian Builder style that recalls the historic character of residential Steveston and for its location on a prominent corner lot reflecting the importance of the owners. The decorative nature of the style was not typical of the early Edwardian houses.
