The two-story Queen Anne house with a basement was completed in 1892 in the prime of the Victorian Era. The primary defining feature of the American Queen Anne style is the use of varied wall plain and forms using towers and bays; flat and plain expanses are varied. In the Midwest, the majority of Queen Anne homes were constructed in wood clapboard or wood shingles. A key feature of the Queen Anne style is asymmetry, often in the form of steeply pitched, cross-gabled roofs and cylindrical towers. Elaborate, ornamented porches that were constructed along with the house are also a notable feature. Asymmetry, varied texture, and ornamentation are all basic elements of the Queen Anne.

In the 2013 Village Architectural and Historical Survey the home was listed as significant for being an excellent example of the Queen Anne style. The home was built on a stone foundation and still has the original clapboard siding and beveled glass windows. Multiple textures are gained from the different siding options at the roof elements; varied clapboard treatments, shingle patterns, and moldings exist on the home. The turret on the southeast corner is a key feature of the Queen Anne style. The turret, in addition to the cross-gabled roof contributes to the asymmetry of the house. The house also includes an ornamental porch with top mounted horizontal spindles. Ornamentation is found in the window framing, balusters, additional spindlework, and decorative pediment on the north side. A rear addition does not impact the home’s historic integrity.

The house was built by Emerson Foote, who was a business partner with E.H. Prince and Fannie Linscott in The E.H. Prince and Company. In 1890, The E.H. Prince and Company platted an attractive subdivision northwest of the Main Street train station which caused significant growth in the community. Emerson Foote died before moving into the home but his children and wife, Corinne Foote, lived there from August 1892 until the family moved in 1905. Corinne Foote remained invested in the subdivision and was particularly involved with erecting a large greenhouse between Saratoga Avenue and Forest Avenue, which at the time was named Foote Street.
