    Significance: Gable-front cottage is a descendant from the Greek rather than from the Gothic Revival and is quite typical of a formerly common building type. The porch spreads across the entire front with a hipped roof carried on three irregularly spaced turned posts; it also shelters two double-hung windows and an entrance topped by simple cornices. Toward the back on the east side is a polygonal projecting bay; projecting to the west slightly behind the front face is a pitched roof wing there may be later additions but they detract little from the basic integrity of the house.

    Historic Features: Center front gable, full front porch, multistory bay window, porch with turned columns and picket balustrade.

    Alterations: One story addition.
