"This one-story, side-gabled dwelling represents the earliest building in the Voelcker Farmstead Historic District. The building appears to have been built in several phases. The earliest phase is represented by a single pen, square-plan dwelling with solid, random ashlar limestone walls and gable covered by a historic-age corrugated metal side-gabled roof. Additions during the historic period include a wood-framed addition and front porch. A limestone chimney was originally situated at the east gable end of this structure and now serves the wood-frame addition to the east as well."
