The original house, a one-story Victorian dwelling constructed in 1893 for H. J. Bartenbach, was redesigned by local architect Gordon Shattuck in 1937-38 for Mrs. Bartenbach, giving the house its present appearance. Distinctive interior spaces include the open stairway and landing area, which features a newel post and balustrade of Modernistic desgn utilizing chromed rods and railings.
