Long Description:
The Gauff-Roth house is a Queen Anne style house built in 1880. The two-and-a-half story brick house features many Queen Anne style features including a large wrap around porch, a multi-sided turret, and a hipped roof with multiple gables and dormers.

The house was commissioned by Mary Grauff and Elizabeth (Craig) Gauff, sisters, whose money came from an inheritance from their grandfather, Jacob Geisinger, a land baron owning much of Allentown, who had raised them.

The house appears to be in very good condition.
