Signficant Architectural Features:
Built by James M. Stocker in 1840, the house is a variation on the mid-19th century single house, with a plan that is as individual as the exterior is typical. As usual, the piazzas are on the side of the house with all level rooms opening onto the gallery; but a front door was not actually designed and all openings are uniform so any one of them might serve as a door. There is no central hall or side hall. All rooms open into each other through the body of the house. The stairs may be found in a rear projection of the house, thus showing that the builder tried to play down the stairway concept. Exterior treatment is limited to a dog-toothed cornice and parapet grills in the radiating cluster of the Greek anthemion design.
