This one-story, hipped-roof house is three bays wide and double-pile. The house has a brick pier and concrete block curtain foundation, German-profile wood siding, and an asphalt-shingled roof. The house has a hip-roofed front dormer and exposed rafter tails. The engaged front porch is supported by large square replacement columns with a replacement wood rail with wood lattice. The house has one-over-one replacement windows on the fa├žade and retains original two-over- two windows on the side elevations with a pair of nine-light casement windows in the front dormer. The front door is a modern replacement with new surround. George W. Gray (horseshoer) is listed here in 1919 and 1924. Gray is also the first known occupant of 702 N. Queen Street, listed there in 1915. The house is identical in form to 707 N. Queen Street across the street.
