Significance: This house is a major example of the creole tradition for vertical log construction (poteaux sur sole). It is one of the largest early houses in the new village of Ste. Genevieve, a National Historic Landmark Historic District. Including its Greek Revival trim from a mid-nineteenth century period of remodeling, it is also one of the most elegant. The house occupies a central position in the new settlement and preserves its large early lot and setting.
