The main facade has six bays, with a central doorway flanked by two windows on either side. The interior of the home is made up of a central hall, a large parlor with a fireplace, a dining room and four bedrooms.

The house was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1974. The house is now owned by the Watertown Historical Society and is open to the public for tours.
