Chapman House 974 10th StreetThe 1 1/2 story Chapman House is a truncated hipped-roof Italianate cottage which is unusual architecture for settlement Arcata, when cultural influences dictated house types. The side house with gables, cornice returns and lattice-work porch was built in 1874; the main house followed in 1876.

This is a very stylish and correct house with paired slant bays with brackets and colonettes flank a bracketed entrance stoop, supported by two, unusual cruciform pillars on piers. The hip roof once supported a captain's walk.
