Long Description:
The last page of the 1964 application for heritage status has a very nice description of the property including its architectural and societal merit. Find it at (visit link) Some excerpts:
* This house has architectural merit as a good representation of the rebuilding of the town after the War of 1812 with characteristic exterior detail of the period.
* Notable exterior features include Flemish bond brickwork facing the two street fronts, the entrance transom decorated with fine Regency style "metal filigree" and "cames" ornamented with lead rosettes and tooled stone lintels cut to resemble flat arches with keystones at the openings.
* It is built on the site of an early house owned by Eliza
Thompson that was burned in 1813.

I also like the twisted trunk of the tree that is in front.
