The Reuben and Mary Wood House, with its symmetrically planned center hall and side gabled roof fronted by a cross gable, is an example of a once-common, now rare mid-19th century rural house type.  Its details feature an unusual mix of Greek Revival, Gothic and Italianate styles.  The highly intact clapboard covered house retains all of its historic details including window lintels and sills, shutters, door surround and brick chimney.
