From the 1985 National Register Historic District application for Morehead Hill:

One of the most distinctive of the moderately-sized frame houses characterizing the northwest end of the Morehead Hill District. Now a duplex, it is one-and-one-half stories tall with a clipped gable roof and a two-tiered hip-roofed porch at the entrance bay. Tapered box posts on stone plinths support lower tier; turned posts with drop pendant spandrels and scallopping in between appear in the second. The house originally faced Parker St. and in the mid 1910s was turned ninety degrees to face Shepherd.
