Inscription.  This brick residence has seen many uses since it was built, including that of parsonage. It was built c. 1840 by James M. Runyan (1807-1859), one of Burlington's mid-nineteenth century blacksmiths. The structure features a side passage plan with understated Greek Revival detailing, including a decorative glass transom above the front door, flat sandstone window sills and lintels, and a side-gabled roof. At one time, a large stable was located behind the house and church.
 
Erected 2008 by Boone County.
