The Lyman Residence, located in the Alewa Heights suburb of Honolulu, was built between 1917 and 1919 for Frederick Snowden and Mary Babcock Lyman during the first wave of upper-middle-class residential development in the area. The house is significant for its architecture as an example of a Shingle style home built during the early part of the 20th century in Honolulu. It is a two-story wood frame house with a modified rectangular plan, front-gable roof, cross-gable dormers, and masonry chimney. The open eaves feature exposed rafter tails with round-end cutouts and triangular knee braces, which reflect a Craftsman style influence.
