Initially addressed as 18 North Oak Street, this house is representative of the small brick buildings erected by working class families at the turn of the 20th century. Built around 1906, it is a one-story gable-end residence with painted brick. It features overhanging eaves and eave returns with a red brick chimney near the center of the roof ridge. Like its twin to the north, it displays a segmented arched entrance and segmented arched windows with stone sills.
This building was initially occupied by Dale and Laura Truckenmiller; Mr. Truckenmiller was identified as working as a clerk with D. F. Hemenway, a firm providing groceries and meat. Locally significant.
