The Bailey Residence is significant on the local level under criterion C, as a good example of a bungalow style house built in Honolulu prior to the 1920s. The two story, bungalow style house conveys the spirit of the style in its workmanship, its asymmetry, use of lava rock, large shed dormers on either side of the gable roof, the use of figure four brackets and the rafter tails’ decorative carving. It is also architecturally significant as a typical dwelling designed by Emory & Webb, who were one of the foremost architectural firms working in Honolulu during the period 1910-1920.
