The house is a framed, two-story, side-gabled farmhouse with added rear wing and front porch. It was fashionable to have this style of porch after the Civil War. At one time, there were paired interior chimneys but only one exists now. The original roof of the house was raised and returns were added. The threshold and front door are original. The main entrance was moved to the west side of the house and that entry door with fanlights, sidelights and arched lintel is an addition.

Captain Lewis Clark served in the War of 1812, moving to Hudson in 1823 from Connecticut. Lewis’s half-brother, John (Thirty Acres) also moved to Hudson. Lewis and his wife, Trial, had no children.
