The A. Mott Rouse House is a frame I-house with symmetrical three-bay facade crowned by a low gable. A wooden porch, with similar gable, extends across the facade. The walls are sheeted in asbestos siding and iron porch posts have been installed. Behind the main block is a single-pile ell, one-and-a-half stories tall. A. Mott Rouse owned a half-interest in the Walton Rolling Mills, a flour mill located in a ravine adjacent to South Main Street. Located on a man-made pond in a ravine just east of Main Street, the mill processed high-grade flour using steam power. The family sold the mill in the early 20th century; in 1916 it was destroyed by fire (2005 National Register Nomination).
