With a commanding view of the Ohio River Valley the restored home built in 1859, in the Greek Revival style, displays military documents, furniture and objects original to the Butler family. The house, built of native masonry construction, is a traditional four over four with center hallways, retaining nearly all of its original features. Plain and fancy describes this fine old country home with its simplistic façade but grand interior details.
