One of several Gothic Revival cottages in the city, this was built for the physician Thomas D. Stokes. Its three steeply pitched gables have deep eaves with bargeboards dripping with sawn fleur-de-lis. A slightly later one-story porch with sawn balusters wraps around the projecting, gable-end entrance.
