This is a story-and-one-third cottage with elements of the Federal style. Federal features include the narrow doorway with plain frieze and cap, the narrow cornerboards and lack of eave overhang. The Federal trim and substantial chimneys identify this house as perhaps the earliest of the many story-and-one-third 19th century cottages which survive in the Linebrook area.

Ipswich maps show that the house was owned in 1856 by D. Haskell. In the 1910 map it was owned by Mrs. F.G. Ross and the site had acquired four barns.
