This asymmetrical, two-story structure of red brick has a large bay extending from the east end of a cross-gabled wing with a portico on the south side. The building is trimmed in wood and cast stone and employs ornamentation and shapes in streamlined versions of classical elements. A thin, copper-clad steeple rises from the gable end of the projecting bay. The building has a prosperous look in a less than prosperous area.
