Trinity College librarian Joseph Breedlove constructed this two-story double-pile frame house in the 1900s. The restrained Neo-colonial design, reminiscent of the more elaborate (Former) Watts Hospital, is evident in such elements as the plain frieze boards at the base of the deep box cornices, the narrow corner boards with molding at the top, and the paired box porch posts with molding at top and bottom. Dr. Breedlove lived here for several decades.
