Long Description:

Former Clinton Spencer House, 1163 Grand, 1872. Clinton Spencer was Sheriff for Jasper County and it is conjectured that the home was built with embezzled funds and the physical labor provided by jail convicts. The two story brick Italianate home has segmental window heads, a bracketed cornice and is crowned by a widow's walk.

– National Register Nomination

The house appears to be in very good condition and well-maintained. It continues to serve as a private residence.
