 The Morris Lassing House is an interesting study in stylistic evolution. ​ The original house is a dogtrot log structure, possibly built in two stages by Morris Lassing in the 1820'​s. ​ During the 1840s or 1850s the house was raised to two full stories with frame construction,​ and a rear ell was built. ​ Greek Revival embellishments also were added, including a four-panel door with Doric columns and three-part transom, and a modillioned and bracketed cornice. ​ A 1940s remodeling added flanking wings, giving the house a three-part form, and a new ell.  ​ The Morris Lassing House is an interesting study in stylistic evolution. ​ The original house is a dogtrot log structure, possibly built in two stages by Morris Lassing in the 1820'​s. ​ During the 1840s or 1850s the house was raised to two full stories with frame construction,​ and a rear ell was built. ​ Greek Revival embellishments also were added, including a four-panel door with Doric columns and three-part transom, and a modillioned and bracketed cornice. ​ A 1940s remodeling added flanking wings, giving the house a three-part form, and a new ell.  ​
