The lot on which this house stands was owned by a series of land speculators from 1835 to 1895. In 1899, Russell Sackett bought the land and had a home constructed for his family. Sackett was a traveling salesman who settled in Saginaw. After Sackett left, the house was owned by a clothing merchant, the later a real estate agent and a lawyer. The last two owners converted the house for use as an office.
The Russell Sackett House is a two-story Queen Anne home with Shingle Style elements. It has irregular massing, with a second story over-hang, extended gable ends, and two-sided bays. Many of the windows have small panes above a larger rectangular panes. Shingle Style elements of the design include a restrained use of ornamentation, and a lower, sweeping roofline.
