The simply detailed 2-story frame house is an example of the economical construction Holt did for fellow artisans, in this case cabinetmaker Samuel N. Mills. Warrenton memoirist Victoria Louise Pendleton, who moved to town in 1850, wrote that the house was "not as old as it looks to be. It was built by Mr. Holt for Mr. Mills who was a splendid cabinet-maker."
