This is a cross-gable shingle style home, originally built for Farmington's miller, Gustave Wollenberg in 1898. The house with wood shingle siding and asphalt shingle roofing is a lovely example of this style.

The property is significant because of its beautiful architecture and anchoring location at the edge of the historic district. It is a remarkable and authentic example of its style. The building is also associated with Wollenberg family and the Winchell Smith Gristmill.
