Inscription.  

Designed in the Queen Anne style with a variety of materials and using a typically irregular floor plan. Especially notable is the handsome oriel window on the right side. Hon. Henry Truman (1836-1930) was a native of England who came to Sigel, Pa. about 1860 and opened a store. He moved to Brookville and built this home in his retirement, having served as an Associate Judge and as President of the National Bank of Brookville and of the Brookville Glass & Tile Company. The existing sidewalk was laid in 1892 and was described as being of "first class fire brick."
