Statement of significance: 
This simple folk house has an elaborately detailed porch in the Eastlake style. The large arch shape facing north is created by triangular cut work panels filling the corners of the porch opening. The corner post is square in section but two turned columns frame the stairway and entry. Decorative brackets connect these two center columns to the arch form and a spindle row which spans between them. The front gable repeats the arch shape and also incorporates three small circles.
