Said to have been built in 1910s by real estate agent Rufus Aiken, this frame Foursquare reportedly served as a convent for Ronan Catholic nuns who were nurses. Two interior chimneys are symmetrically located on the hipped roof with front dormer. Fluted cornerboards define the three-bay double-pile form. The south corner of the wraparound porch supported by box posts has been enclosed and the original trabeated entrance is now flanked by two dissimilar doors added when the house was converted to apartments.
