This house was built by Richard Newcomb in 1869 and occupies a commanding site at the northeast corner of Horace White Park. From old photographs it is clear that the original house included a rear wing. This wing is purported to have been relocated to 1410 White, a mid 19th century building, which did not exist on the site prior to 1913.

Newcomb’s home was built in classic Italianate style with a low-pitched hip roof, crowned with a balustrade. The projecting eaves are supported by paired scroll brackets. A heavy molded frieze, framed by thin corner boards, surrounds the house. A veranda, complete with paired pillars shelters the first floor. The tall, narrow windows are capped on the second floor by segmentally arched window heads and on the first floor by pedimented heads. The center window on the second story has a Palladian motif, with rounded center sash, and the entry door has a segmented arch, transom, and side pilasters. Bay windows project on either side.
