Additional Information:Original farmhouse, built by Fridolin Streiff. Typical example of a Gabled Ell form, but also exhibits Greek Revival style elements. "L"-shaped plan, typical of Gabled Ell form in Wisconsin, in which fron-facing, gabled, main wing (upright wing) is set perpendicular to a lower, side-gabled wing. Both wings are rectilinear in plan. House measures 40 feet long and 26.5 feet deep.

Upright wing is 2 stories in height, approx. 19.5 feet wide, 26.5 feet deep, roofed with asphalt shingles. Roofline is oriented east-west. The main wing features a hipped-roof, asphalt-shingled bay window on its west-facing elevation.

Ell is also 2 stories but is slightly shorter than the main wing. It is oriented north-south, perpendicular to the main wing. It is roofed with asphalt shingle.

In addition to the main wing and the ell, there is a 1-story gable-roofed ell that measures 14 feet long by 10,5 feet deep attached to the south elevation of the main wing.
