Isabel Vecki had a dance and piano studio there for a time. The house was also used by the Pentecostal church and then became office space. Insurance broker and photographer Bill Hockins used it for his office for many years.
Today it is a two-story stucco structure with steep cross gables, and Greek revival style moldings. The original wooden board and batts have been covered by stucco and the gingerbread trim has been removed. Evidently when this work was done to the house, an addition was built to the rear and a foundation placed under the house. It had a small, somewhat awkward parking lot between the house and the street. In 2002, the current owner Kim Williams picked up and moved the structure forward, closer to Front Street and a significant addition was built to the rear of the property.
As the oldest intact building in Old Town, it was recognized by a SRV Historical Society plaque on November 20, 2009. Tours always stop to admire the restored house and remember the families who lived there.
