1910s (History of the Town of Hillsborough)

(Below in italics is from the National Register listing; not verified for accuracy by this author.)

Said to have been constructed as a railroad hotel, this two-story, hip-roofed house stands just south of the railroad tracks and faces the south end of Nash Street where the railroad depot once stood. The house has been significantly altered with a replacement porch and retains little historic fabric. The building is three bays wide and double-pile with plywood covering the façade, right (west), and rear (south) elevations and tarpaper on the left (east) elevation. The lot slopes to reveal a tall brick foundation with wide carriage openings. There is an attic gable with a vent at the apex on the façade, replacement vinyl windows throughout, interior stuccoed chimneys, and an original standing-seam metal roof. The front door is sheltered by a shed-roofed porch supported by square posts with a corrugated metal roof. A replacement door centered on the second-floor façade opens to the porch roof. There is a large, uncovered wood deck at the rear.
