Significance: The Geyer house is one of a rapidly-dwindling number of mid- and late-nineteenth century homes in the quickly developing rural areas of Franklin County. The outer townships (those beyond the urban fringe of Columbus) remained largely rural but since the late 1980s have come under increasing development pressure. The Geyer house is an example of the homes built by second- or third-generation Franklin county farmers: well-built, fairly large, but very simple in design, detailing, and finishes. The house's vernacular design, based on Italianate precedents and traditional building techniques, is typical of these rural homes.
