Year Built: 1888
In its original form, the building was a massive two-story frame structure with a high hipped roof broken by gables. From the southeast corner, rose a square tower capped by a bell-cast dome. Similar domes crowned turrets on the main roof and rear section. The building had a wide variety of window configurations.
This is likely the design of John Spofford.
