 Hih on a windswept ridge south of [[Union]] off of [[transportation in boone county|U.S. 42]], the Tucker House enjoys great visual prominence. ​ Originally a small log dwelling, it was enlarged and updated in the Gothic Revival manner around the time of the [[Civil War]]. ​ Period details, such as finely scalloped bargeboards,​ and a dripmold cornice, are perfectly in scale. ​ The roof is low and hipped rather than steeply gabled, and appears to hug the ground. Hih on a windswept ridge south of [[Union]] off of [[transportation in boone county|U.S. 42]], the Tucker House enjoys great visual prominence. ​ Originally a small log dwelling, it was enlarged and updated in the Gothic Revival manner around the time of the [[Civil War]]. ​ Period details, such as finely scalloped bargeboards,​ and a dripmold cornice, are perfectly in scale. ​ The roof is low and hipped rather than steeply gabled, and appears to hug the ground.
