 A significant Greek Revival work in [[Boone County]], the Parker House is a classic five-bay I-house, built in brick. ​ The large front door unit, with transom and sidelights, is finished with a crossette architrave surround. ​ The 6/6 windows are topped by stone lintels. ​ The gabled entry porch with engaged pilasters and paired Doric columns is a reconstruction. ​ The lane leading to the house formerly was an old road, following Terrill’s Branch. ​ A significant Greek Revival work in [[Boone County]], the Parker House is a classic five-bay I-house, built in brick. ​ The large front door unit, with transom and sidelights, is finished with a crossette architrave surround. ​ The 6/6 windows are topped by stone lintels. ​ The gabled entry porch with engaged pilasters and paired Doric columns is a reconstruction. ​ The lane leading to the house formerly was an old road, following Terrill’s Branch. ​
