The Louis Lemaire house represents a simplified interpretation of the Shingle Style. It is the kind of dwelling a well-to-do businessman in this part of the state would have built—comfortable but not immense or ostentatious. The Lemaire family, among the first to settle in Battle Mountain, participated in business and politics. Shingled walls, prominent gables, and a full-length porch reflect the Shingle Style.
