The house is significant both for the properties long historic association with the colonial Lord family, who were influential participants in the founding of both the Connecticut Colony and the New Haven Colony, and for its transformation in the late 19th century into a summer estate. The original house, built c. 1748 by Enoch Lord, is a gambrel-roofed 1-1/2 story wood frame structure. Originally located near Lord's Cove, it was moved to its present location in the 1860s by William M. Lord, and was transformed into a Colonial Revival summer house after its purchase in 1898 by Catherine and James Brown.
