Significance: This 5-bay dwelling was expanded toward the garden sometime before 1775 and the central doorway was remodeled around 1800 to include a fanlight, pediment and flanking pilasters. On the north side of the house a beam projects from the attic, perhaps for use as a crane or hoisting mechanism.
