This is a mid 19th century 1 1/2 story Greek revival cottage with a Victorian covered side porch and entry. It appears that the corner boards and watertable boards were removed when it was resided.

The windows are wood 6/6.

The siding is old composition, probably asbestos.

The chimney is older brick, modified.

This site contained a cooperage operated by J.J.Bickner from 1846 to 1859.
