Inscription.  

The Hand House is a two-story brick I-house. It was built in the late 1820s and is one of the oldest buildings in Cumberland Furnace. The bricks in the three brick thick walls are handmade. It has served not only as a residence but a tavern as well.

The house is a good example of early brick construction on the Western Highland Rim.
