Architectural Style: Vernacular
Year Built: c. 1860
Architect/Builder: Unknown
Original Owner: Unknown

There is little known about George Dale, who owned the house in 1871, and may very well have been the original owner.  The house itself is a fairly simple wood frame structure that was common in this area during the mid-19th century.  Standing two stories tall, it is a simple cross-gable design.  The front entrance was originally located in the left bay of the front gable, but has since been relocated to the right bay.  The door is covered by a small gabled portico supported by round, fluted Tuscan columns.  A small single story section at the northwest corner of the house was added at an unknown date.
