The large Victorian farmhouse located on Sherman St. has a decorative white fence along the street, one man stands on a large porch on the left, another just below the steps, and a woman is seated to his right at the corner of the house while another man sits on a small porch on the right. The trolley line runs in front of the house and part of a trolley car is at the lower right of the photo with two men standing on the platform and two more just in front. A young boy seated on a horse in front of a horse and carriage with a driver are on the drive to the left of the house. A portion of a barn can be seen at the right of the house, and the top of a windmill and the left rear.
