The first and largest 2½ story block of this house was constructed by the Valentines, carpenters, and house builders, c. 1820. It features a Greek-Revival doorway, two interior chimneys and a later wraparound porch with Tuscan-style columns. The smaller second block was built c. 1870.

The Valentine house built about 1810 was originally owned by Garret and Rachel Smith. Their daughter Maria married Jacob Valentine. Their son Garret Valentine was the local tax collector. He would bury the collected tax money in the pig sty until it could be safely deposited in the ban. During WWII the house was "The Blue Churn" tea room.
