Provenance note:

Architectural note:
The house's design came from the Anglo-Grecian Villa plans from William Ranlett's "The Architect" patternbook. The ornamental woodwork over doors and elsewhere in the house was brought in from Philadelphia. Around 1915 two bathrooms were added, and the north porch was converted into a kitchen. Foundation is composed of rubble stone, walls composed of brick with stucco on exterior and plaster on interior, and floors are tongue-and-groove yellow pine. The ceilings are plaster on wood lath, and the roof is standing seam sheet metal over original shingle.
Historical note:
The home is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and as a National Historical Landmark.
