This typical two-story I-house has a one-story gabled rear ell with two subordinate, one-story shed-roofed additions. The house has been covered with vinyl siding, rests on a concrete block foundation, and has an asphalt-shingled roof. Replacement six-over-six wood windows light the first floor, while original two-over-two wood windows illuminate the second. The one-story, hip- roofed front porch features turned posts, carved brackets, a spindle frieze, and a replacement rail. A replacement front door with nine lights over a raised panel stands within an altered surround.

The earliest known residents were Ernest T. Rogers (machine operator), Percy Rogers (bookkeeper), Lucy Rogers (widow) and her children Bertha, Ella, Jane, and Orpie from 1907 to 1912. J. C. Morris lived in the house from at least 1919 to 1929; his widow, Mrs. Georgianna Morris lived there through 1939.


The Leather's family has lived in this house since the 1960s.  Mr. and Mrs. Leathers raised their 12 (I think...maybe 10) children here.
