Statement of Significance (as of designation - November 7, 1973):
This 4-story, semi-detached brownstone was purchased by General Winfield Scott in 1853, shortly after its construction. Scott was a victorious general in the Mexican-American War and an unsuccessful Whig candidate in the Presidential election of 1852.

The condition of the building is deteriorated.

Recommendation/Change since last report:
Funding is needed for a complete restoration or sympathetic rehabilitation.
