This house is a two story brick Greek Revival house. The structure is a six by two bay volume capped with a gable roof. It has an eaves front orientation and located on the south side of North Street. The first floor has a central three by one bay porch. The windows are two over two sash double-hung windows with flat arch lintels and wood sills. The second story windows align with the first floor openings. The house was constructed as a two family tenement and is speculated to be one of the first in the neighborhood. (1) The house is in a good state of preservation. The exact construction date is unknown but appears on the 1853 map of Burlington.
