John Droup lived in this house in the 1870s with his wife Sarah.  Sarah was still living in this house in 1896 as a widow.  From the outside, this house appears to be of the "hall and parlor" variety common in the 1840s and 1850s.  It stands two stories tall with a steep side gable roof and a central chimney.  The main door is covered by a simple portico with a shed roof supported by simple wrought-iron posts.  Several single-story additions exist to the rear of the house.  It is difficult to say when these additions were made.  The side-gable addition on the southwest corner of the house may actually date slightly earlier than the main house.
