The 1-1/2-story gable roof cottage has a north rear ell. The façade is weatherboarded beneath the porch. It is said to be the house described by Outlaw as built for W. Griffin in 1859, but recent owners doubt such an early date. It was sold to Mrs. Duncan Winston and later owned by her daughter, Mrs. Wales. Mrs. Wales moved it from its site one lot north. In 1937 Mrs. Frederick Drane bought the house from Mrs. Wales and had it expanded by Mr. Twine. Sources: Silver, Drane interviews.
