This is an example of a modest yet highly recognizable house form developed in Providence between 1820 and 1830: a two-story side-hall-plan main block capped by a low hip roof with monitor in front of a smaller-scale service ell in the rear, its clapboarding exterior framed at the corners by big wood blocks. Like much of this area in the early nineteenth century, this first housed a mariner and his family.
