Statement of significance:

A particularly good example of an early local cottage. Form is typically Federation. Some excellent period detailing, uncommon locally. Characteristically modest otherwise. Essentially intact down to picket fence. Possibility of relocation from elsewhere would add to interest. Indications are that this may have been relatively common locally, at one stage.
Note: The State Heritage Inventory provides information about heritage items listed by local and State government agencies. The State Heritage Inventory is continually being updated by local and State agencies as new information becomes available. Read the OEH copyright and disclaimer.
