2015:
The J.F. Schwalbach House, built in 1878, is a two-story gable ell with modest Italianate influences. The cream brick walls rest on a rubblestone foundation and the gable roof is covered with asphalt shingles and features wide frieze boards. Cream brick chimneys extend above the ridgeline at either end of the main block. The main entrance is located in the southernmost bay of the gable on the front (southwest) facade, and consists of a four-panel wood door. A secondary entrance is located on the front facade of the ell, although an ell porch appears to have been removed. Window openings have segmental arch brick headers with stone keys and contain two-over-two wood double hung sash. Oculus windows in the gable ends have been covered with plywood. A shed roof rear hyphen and frame carriage house at the rear, visible in a 1977 survey photograph, have been removed.
