The acreage associated with this house lies on the north and south sides of SR 1004 and is largely composed of cleared land embraced by timber. The earliest portion of the house is the oldest surviving structure in the Cedar Grove community. This one-story timber-frame section was constructed in the early 1800s and consisted of a kitchen room and two other rooms. A stone chimney with brick stack is located on the west end of the house. A two-story, two-bay-deep east-facing house was erected adjoining the east side of the one-story structure ca. 1892 by a local builder,John Finley. Intersecting this addition is a two-story I-house that extends from the front or east side forming an L-plan.The I-house appears to be contemporary with the addition or built shortly thereafter. The I-house has two brick exterior end-chimneys,a brick exterior rear chimney, and 2/2 double-hung windows. The two structures are sheathed in weatherboard siding, rest on a stone foundation, and are covered in a v-crimp metal roof. The house was originally the centerpiece of a farmstead and has several outbuildings associated with it. These include three sheds, a corn crib,a barn,two log tobacco barns, and a tenant house. The log tobacco barns and the tenant house are located across Carr Store Road (SR 1004) to the northwest of the main house. At the west end of the side-gabled tenant house is a large stone chimney. The occupants of the early 1800s house are not known; however, the first occupant of the 2-story addition was John Paisley Hughes (1867-1931). He and Lena McDade moved into the house upon their marriage in 1892 (Orange County Marriages 1752-1911).
