This residence is significant as an excellent example of Dutch Colonial Revival architectural style, which is part of the larger Colonial Revival movement. Growing out of the Philadelphia Centennial of 1876, Colonial Revival refers to the entire rebirth in interest in early American architecture along the Atlantic seaboard. The style gained popularity in the 1880s, but continued to be employed through the twentieth century.
Local designation date is July 7, 2015.
