This 2½-story front-gable house is another early village home, which until the early twentieth century, was occupied by the Isaac Sutherland family. Sutherland owned extensive farmlands including an orchard. The Sutherland farm occupied what is now the western portion of the village. The house retains Federal Style proportions, massing, and fenestration. About 1920 the house was enlarged and remodeled in the Colonial Revival style. Changes included stucco cladding, the large front bay window, the side wing, and the new entrance vestibule. The changes made to the house illustrate the effect on the village made by wealthy Rochester commuters who began moving here after 1900.
