According to the town records. Samuel Peck purchased the land and built this four-room house in 1754. The house comprises of a 36-by-24 foot, 1 1/2- story main block appended by an 18-by-40 foot, 1 1/2 - story rear ell. The main block's exterior features a fieldstone rubble foundation above grade, a three-bay wide facade, a recently reconstructed central chimney and a ridge-to-street, asphalt shingled gable-roof with deep front and rear eave overhangs. The rear ell of the house, which also rests on a fieldstone rubble foundation, incorporates a 'raised-plate' design. The interior of the Samuel Peck House as a while retains an unusually high degree of significant historic fabric and features.

The Samuel Peck House is an excellent and substantial intact example of a rural late 18th-century frame house as modified in the early 19th-century which retains an unusually high degree of historic integrity with respect to its setting.
