Statement of significance: 
This well preserved house is an excellent example of the Prairie style. It is also Pendleton's most pure example, characterized by the strong horizontal emphasis on the exterior. The first and second story windows are grouped together to form horizontal openings. The second story windows also occur within a stucco band which continues around the house accentuated by the cornice line above and continuous wood trim below. The individual window units are composed of two and three small vertical panes over a larger vertical pane and are single hung. The front door also echoes this typical detailing, with three small vertical panes of glass set in the top part of the door.
