The home has six-over-six windows, offset entry on the main façade, one exterior end stone chimney, one-story rear ell and shed rooms, and porch supported with square wooden columns.
The home was constructed by Samuel A. Todd, an immigrant from Ireland, around 1818 (a date which is carved on the log framework of the front entry door). The entire home is said to be of log construction with a composite chimney on the north façade and a stone pier foundation. The kitchen was originally separate from the home but was attached at an unknown date.
