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.

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.
