The northwest corner of the Hudson Annex is the original structure. Tradition holds that it was built as the Silas Hudson carriage house to 501 North 5th., which sits adjacent to it. It has wood sills and no lintels as opposed to the segmental arches on the newer South facade. The newer part of the home is a two-story, rectangular Italianate structure with a low hip roof. The symmetrical façade is a five bay front with 2 over 2 windows. The central double doorway with transom is highlighted by one-story entry portable with Italianate detail. There is a one-story gabled row of brick extension with chimney on the northeast corner. A low limestone retaining wall borders the house on the South side, with stone steps leading from the South wall to the yard above. At one time this house have a widow’s walk on the roof. The current owners anticipates putting that Widows walk back.
