This Greek Revival dates to 1848. It is a 2- story, 3-bay stretcher-bond house with a slate shingled-gable roof. The 1-story, I-bay portico has square columns, a heavy boxed cornice and brick foundation piers. Hiram Oliver was a builder in Union Hill, who lived the cottage next door. The house at 701 was rebuilt in the 1990s after the north wall collapsed. Architect Bob Mills purchased the house in order to prevent its demolition. It was carefully restored by engineer Bob Moss.
