Inscription.  This home was built in 1964 by the William Wolter family for the sum of $3,300.00 and remained in the family until 1980. The house is of Folk Victorian design with a stone foundation. The roof is a gable and hip design with overhanging eaves. The porch wraps around the north wall and west wing. In addition to spindle work detailing on the porch, the porch's shed roof is finished with two types of shingles that create a circular pattern. The exterior of the house was painted in 1985 in true Victorian fashion, resulting in six different color hues. This was in contrast to the white house that existed for 81 years. A Gothic Picket fence was also added in 1987.

The original construction featured nine rooms and two sets of pocket doors. All the doors, windows, and millwork have the original wood graining that dates back to the construction of the house. In 2000 a main floor bedroom was added, along with a complete renovation and expansion of the kitchen and two bathrooms. The same attention to detail was included with the addition using the same millwork and graining techniques as the original construction.
