Listed on the National Register of Historic Places since 1994, the house was built in the vernacular Federal style around 1794, and was expanded in the 1840s and '50s. It is a two-story, five-bay dwelling, and possesses a distinctive Federal-style entrance, featuring a paneled door with half sidelights and a blind elliptical fanlight.
