Built in 1855 in the Italian Renaissance architectural style, the two-story home's design by Isaiah Rogers reflected Gaff's involvement in the shipping industry; its full-width frontal porch is reminiscent of a steamboat's deck. The mansion, which was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1992, is owned and operated by Hillforest Historical Foundation. It is located in the Downtown Aurora Historic District.
