Signficant Architectural Features:
One-story frame house covered with synthetic siding that resembles weatherboard. Gable roof features plain boxed cornice with returns. Two brick interior chimneys can be seen from W. Butler Street. Windows are double-hung sash. Front (north elevation): asymmetrical; in the center of the front is an entrance, a single door framed by rectangular two-light transom and two-pane sidelights; to the west of the entrance is one 2/2 window; to the east of the entrance is a gabled polygonal projection which contains three 2/2 windows; across front and much of the east elevation is a porch with hipped roof supported by turned posts. West side: one-story addition with hipped roof at the north end of the rear ell. East side: one door, one 2/2 window; small addition (probably once part of the porch) at the southeast corner.
altered - Comparison of a recent aerial photo with the Sanborn maps shows that the form of the building appears to be fundamentally unchanged.
The 1922 and 1931 Sanborn maps of Denmark indicate that this building was used as a dwelling. The house is in an area not shown on the 1908 and 1913 Sanborns.
