This structure is a rare surviving example of a late 18th-century Federal double-house in Savannah. The original double staircase enclosure is unique to the City’s remaining historic buildings in that it extends to the attic level. Important fabric remaining include the building wood frame structure, exterior clapboards, fragments of roof cornice assembly, second and attic floor boards, fragments of interior bead board wall covering at ground floor, and brick foundation wall. The 9 over 6 window pattern is based on nailing patterns found on the internal window framing. This pattern presently exists only at two other Savannah properties, the rear addition of the Berrien House on Broughton Street, and the James Skinner House at 303 East Liberty Street.
