Statement of significance: 
This house displays the most elaborate Eastlake detailing of any in Pendleton. Porch brackets feature cutouts, perforations, and carved forms. They support a spool and spindle row at the cornice line on the North and South sides. The front (east) side of the porch features an arched rail with a graduated spool and spindle row above and a central pendant. The porch railing is composed of short, rectangular balusters with brackets supporting a tiny spool and spindle row at the top railing height. An elaborate cut-out design also adorns the porch roof gable and is set against flush, vertical wood siding. The bay brackets on the North side of the house are done in a fan design composed of tiny spindles. Decorative pendants occur at the corners of the bay overhangs as well. All of the windows have a slightly projecting sill, below which the window frame continues with triangular corner extensions, this shape is repeated on the picket fence surrounding the house. The North gable projection has a trim board separating the horizontal siding and shingles above. This trim board displays a row of Eastlake perforated circles.
