It was built about 1857 and is a 1 1/2-story, "L"-shaped dwelling built of native gorge stone in the Italian Villa style. It has a low pitched gable roof with deep overhanging eaves. From 1857 to 1900, it was the home of Hazard H. Sheldon (1821-1900), an important figure in the early civic affairs of Niagara Falls.[2]
