The house is primarily Greek Revival outside but had Italianate features on the outside including an elaborate full-width porch (lost). Family tradition explains that the original house was built before 1846 for Daniel Turner and was enlarged and remodeled for Richard Robinson, who bought it in 1854. Family tradition strongly claims Holt’s role in the remodeling.
