The Samuel H. & Mary T. Booth House on City Island in the Bronx was built from 1887-1893 by prolific City Island contractor Samuel Booth, who lived in the house until 1959. The House was built in the Stick architectural style, featuring decorative wood trim, asymmetrical massing, and a gabled roof among other features. The house underwent minor renovations in the mid-1980s.

In November 2017, this and another house on City Island were declared New York landmarks since both “illustrate the history and development of City Island as a suburban community” according to former LPC Chair Meenakshi Srinivasan. However, on March 12, 2018, both houses were stripped of their landmark designation by the New York City Council since the owners were reported to have objected to their designations
