The Sealy Hutchings House exemplifies the distinctive characteristics of the Queen Anne single family dwelling with Classical Revival detailing, designed by noted Galveston architect, George B. Stowe. The house is situated in a neighborhood of homes and other buildings, largely of the same era, south of Broadway, Galveston's major thoroughfare, and west of the locally designated Silk Stocking Historic District. The Sealy Hutchings House was built by a prominent Galveston banker and businessman, Sealy Hutchings, and his wife, Mary Moody, a member of another prominent and successful family in Galveston's history. Just to the east of this estate, the German garden club, Garten Verein, was established in 1876.
