 Constructed in the late 19th Century, the small scale and simple finish of this building suggest it was used as a tenant house. It is a diminutive frame dwelling of very simple design, built on the two-room plan with integral lean-to. ​ It stands one-and-a-half-stories high under a “saltbox” roof of raised-seam metal. ​ The interior walls are covered with wood plank siding, and a narrow, steep, enclosed stair leads to the second story. ​ Near the house are a barn, corncrib and privy.  ​ Constructed in the late 19th Century, the small scale and simple finish of this building suggest it was used as a tenant house.
