Significance: This large farm house of all-frame construction is a well preserved example of cross hall type having typical Eastern Shore porches with flagstone floors on main facades. Victorian modernizations re-employing early elements like the double entrance doors, as well as gingerbread overlays, emphasize the continuity of history and shifting viewpoints in taste.
Survey number: HABS VA-590
Building/structure dates: ca. 1785 Initial Construction
