Significance: Documentary research combined with a close analysis of the fabric reveals that the nucleus of the structure was the brick one-story dwelling insured by Dr. Elisha C. Dick in 1796. The building's importance historically lies in the circumstance that it is the only home projected and partially built by the famous Alexandria medical practitioner. / This building is a regionally typical, three-storied, three-bay, town type brick residence of the early 19th century.
