The half-timbered, Tudor Revival home with two prominent gables was illustrated in Architectural Forum (August 1919), and drawings survive at the University of Pennsylvania. Owner Frank G. Tallman came to Wilmington in 1905 as a DuPont executive and assembled a nationally famous collection of Lincoln memorabilia, now at the University of Delaware. The rough-faced brick used on the dwelling was a recent innovation of English-born mason Edward L. Johnson, who came to Wilmington in 1868 and trained as a journeyman bricklayer under builder Thomas B. Hizar.
