A contributing property to the proposed South Harper Street Historic District extension. The home is in the National Register of Historic Places and has had no alterations since its listing in 1986: Two-story frame residence with weatherboard exterior and a cross-gable roof. The house is significant for its Eastlake-influenced architecture including a two-tiered porch on the façade, single-story porches on the side elevations, pedimented window and door surrounds and elaborate ornamentation on the porch supports, balustrades and window decoration. The house also has the popular scalloped attic vents seen on several properties in Laurens.
