The Hunter House is a locally significant example of an early nineteenth-century residence on a raised basement with elements of the Federal style on both the interior and exterior. The Hunter House is a one-and-one-half story, weatherboarded building on a raised brick basement. The L-shaped house, which is said to have been constructed before 1820, has a gable roof and exterior end chimneys. The roof is covered with standing seam metal. The chimneys and the exterior of the basement level are stuccoed. The five-bay fašade features a pedimented porch sheltering the three central bays. The porch rests on stuccoed piers. The roof of the porch is supported by square wood posts connected by elliptical arches and a plain balustrade. A flight of wooden steps with a plain balustrade leads to the porch. The fašade beneath the porch is sheathed in flushboard. The house has an ell on the rear and a small wing on the east elevation. Listed in the National Register December 6, 1984.
