Changed little since its construction in 1860, this workingman's style home, with two stories in front and a one-story rear addition, gave the impression of a larger structure.
The design is transitional; the symmetrical facade shows Colonial influence, and the porch, which may have been added later, has Victorian decorations. Century-old plantings still bloom in the yard.
The wood shed is believed to have been constructed out of materials from a barn which originally stood along the north alley.
It is typical of 19th century out-buildings. The windows are from the 1840's.
