Vernacular Queen Anne one story farm house with two end chimneys with decorative brick tops and two gable dormers on the main façade containing diamond-shaped vents and topped with cutwork horns. The porch is supported with turned posts that are accented with cutwork brackets and a dental frieze. The home has six-over-six windows, shed roof porches on the rear and side elevations, and a line of cedar trees on the main façade lawn. There are several associated frame outbuildings.
The house was built for Emerson Cromer, a cotton farmer, just before his marriage. The outbuildings were built at the same time as the house. A porch was added ca. 1930-40.
