(Below in italics is from the 1984 National Register listing; not verified for accuracy by this author.)

Large two story L-shaped farmhouse style with weatherboard siding. Gable roof topped by two chimneys, one with elaborate brickwork, the other recently rebuilt. Two front facing gables, one closed, one open pediment; both with elaborate round motif within the pediment. Side gable has elaborate barge board. Shed roof veranda supported by round columns.

The house was likely built by William J. Christian, president of the Merchants Bank, who was resident in 1919.
