The Emerson Place Row is architecturally and historically significant as one of a rare surviving group of multi-unit residences designed to resemble rowhouses in the city of Buffalo. The row is one of only four intact groups of similar housing remaining in the Masten neighborhood of north central Buffalo, the only area in the city where frame multi-unit rows were built in any concentration.
Built in 1893 by Benjamin B. Rice, the row is comprised of two, seven-unit buildings. They exhibit the architectural details characteristic of several popular late 19th century styles of architecture, including Shingle style, Colonial Revival, and Eastlake. Due to their large size, identical detailing, and close proximity, the two buildings visually form a unified facade.
Currently, the buildings are in a state of disrepair, but several are still occupied.
