    Significance: Broad frame structure presents the major characteristics of the period's interest in clear form, the front gable has rafters and a cornice describing a pediment; its shingled field, which slides slightly over the cornice, is divided into two sections by a board that extends the lintel of the attic's squat fenestration which has three double-hung windows, the central one nearly three times wider than the flanking ones, the second story, sheathed in zig-zag shingles, has a pair of windows on the west half and, in a slight bow, a tripartite window on the other, below it, within the porch, is a broad window with a fixed pane and transom set into the clapboard cladding, the porch's shed roof is supported by a simple entablature and three very thin Ionic columns; the original tightly ranked square balusters survive. A hip roofed dormer appears on the east side; beyond it is a polygonal-fronted projection with a pedimented gable above.

    Historic Features: Full front porch, columns with capitals; gable extensions on east and west elevations; front window with transom.
