Said to have been built in the 1890s on Vickers Ave. and moved to this site in the mid 1910s, this vernacular Queen Anne style house retains its original wraparound porch supported by tapered box posts molded at the top. The gable in the porch roof at the entrance bay is filled with applied half-timbering. A large chimney with a corbelled stack projects from the middle of the cross- gabled toof.
