A house appears on this site as early as 1871, at which time the property was owned by E. Riley.  By 1896 it was owned by W. Durbin.  It is a simple one and a half house with a side gable.  The long ell at the rear was likely added in the late-19th century, though it is difficult to determine exactly when this expansion occurred.  A wide, full-length front porch is also a later addition.  The tracery between each column, each with decorative brackets, and the delicate spindle ballustrade were influenced by Stick Style elements, a subset of Queen Anne architecture.  The early-20th century barn to the south of this house shows the use of pre-cut, machine-sawed lumber and mass-produced nails.
