Summary

Significance: The Peak House was determined eligible for the National Register of Historic Places in 1990 because of the building's architectural characteristics reflecting distinctive type, period, and method of construction, and because the structure retains "its integrity of location, design, materials, workmanship, feeling, and association." The building is an example of the National Folk Style built during the building period of ca. 1897. This style is significant because of its association with the nation's history.
