Long Description:
A 2 story, 5 bay symmetrical center entrance Federal style building, with both fan and side lights wrapping around the door and 6-over-6 double hung windows. Most of the windows have shutter treatments, but some of the shutters are missing, and the window sashes need painting. If there was one feature that distinguishes this form other similar cobblestones in the area, it would be the massive carved and curved limestone lintel that arches over the fan light over the front door.

The window lintels are composed of slanted brick shaped limestones. The quoins are the smaller variety (6 inch x 3 inch?) cut limestone, and the sills are solid limestone slabs. The cobbles themselves are quite irregular in size, as you can see from the closeup, ranging from small to large, but generally keeping to 2-3 rows per quoin.

There are two additions to the rear of the cobblestone section, but a head-on look from Telephone Road shows nothing but cobblestone!
