Built for attorney, mine operator, and railroad promoter Reuben C. Winslow, the house was begun before the Civil War and finished afterward. The two-and-one-half-story brick house has a square, three-story central tower. The convex roofs of the tower and the awning over the second-story window lend an East Asian air, especially when combined with the bracketed eaves, the visual equivalent of fringe. Heavy drip molds outline the windows, and a tall entablature lines the cornice. The wooden porch has more elaborately carved ornamentation than the usual stock porch trim.
