Built in the 1890s by Patrick H. Rice, a leading citizen and Catholic layman who served on many committees for the betterment of the Augusta community. This is a fine example of the Queen Anne style including an irregular floor plan, a corner turret, a second story gabled porch, overhanging gabled rooms and a mixture of weatherboarding and wood shingles. The front porch brick piers replaced the original in the 20th Century.
