Long Description:
Taken from the NRHP nomination form, "Shown on the 1860 Curtis Map as "Dwelling", this is believed to have been the residence of the Lees' tenant farmer. The two-story house consists of two matching 2f-story modules, one wood-shingle frame, one rubble stone. Each module contains one room per floor. The stone (west) unit is older and is included in David Lee's 1814 tax roll; there is an interior brick chimney rising flush with the exterior (west) wall; it services a massive cooking fireplace in the cellar and progressively smaller fireplaces in the main floor and attic; this module also contains the stairs, two parallel straight flights."
