Across the street from the Nabb-Jacobs House is the cozy Howard House. Located at the southeast corner of Main and Summit Streets, this house is reflects the colonial revival style. It has a symmetrical, three-bay north-facing façade with a central entranceway. The structure is brick-veneered and has a side-gabled slate roof and two end chimneys. The entrance has a porch with the doorway flanked by sidelights and panels, and topped by a wide fanlight.
