Description and history

Situated on a slope the front is one story and the back is two stories. The hipped roof has wide enclosed, stuccoed eaves and is covered by shingles. The lava rock foundation extends through the facade forming the walls for a full inset porch. A narrow belt course of concrete divides the lava rock foundation from the brickwork and forms the coping of the porch. Thomas Vipham a skilled plasterer and stone and brick mason built this home for himself. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on September 8, 1983 as part of a group of structures built with lava rock in south central Idaho. [3] [4]
