Regarding Wild-Cleaver House. The buildings that remain in Port Penn comprise a visually unified assemblage of residential, commercial and ecclesiastic structures which document its appearance in the late 19th century. Since then 100 years have passed, but there have been relatively few visible changes to Port Penn's overall 19th century architectural and environmental character.
4 South Stewart Street - c. 1790, 2-story, 2-bay, braced frame gable end facade with center chimney; composition siding.
