The home was constructed in 1911 by Richard A. Van Brunt, a merchant who owned and operated a country general store in Miccosukee. It is a wood framedvernacular building with a symmetrical facade. There is a central main door with transom and side lights. It has a side gabled roof with dominant gable returns. Further, it has two chimneys that serve six fireplaces. The gable returns were possibly borrowed from the Methodist Church and Averitt-Winchester House. Van Brunt and his neighbor, Dr. Strickland, were from the Iamonia community, where Van Brunt ran a successful general store and cotton business. His business was also moved to Miccosukee but it was short-lived. Van Brunt died in 1914 and his widow continued in life by boarding teachers employed at the Concord School.
