The home has six over one double hung sash windows and two interior brick chimneys. The main façade has a monumental portico decorated with ionic columns, dental molding, modillions and a round window in the gable. The one-story porch begins on either side of the main entry and is supported by thin ionic columns with dental molding along the frieze. Modillions and dental molding run beneath the roofline. There are several associated frame outbuildings. The main entry door is flanked by sidelights with a leaded pattern.
Metal awnings have been added to the porch. The porch floor has been altered.
The house was built by Reed Garrison, oldest son of William Dunkling Garrison (0404). Reed Garrison opened a cotton gin, bank (0396), post office and store in Denver. The current home replaces a two-story I-house that was originally on the property.
