Statement of significance: 
This house is an excellent example of the Dutch Colonial Revival style. Multi-pane glazing is used throughout and the front porch features typical doric columns, clustered to support a wide architrave and flat porch roof. The first story wing on the South side of the house was originally a second porch which has been enclosed. The property was owned by the Roy Temple Family from 1921-1945.
