The home was built by Harrison Jacob sometime around 1881.  As a plasterer, Jacobs may have helped construct part of the home himself.  The house began as a simple rectangular structure with a front gable similar in style with small Gothic Revival cottages.  A small shed our outbuilding once stood at the rear of the property.  A front porch was added sometime between 1907 and 1913, with narrow, delicate Tuscan columns.  The eastern addition at the rear of the house was added around 1920.
