Description 

Although within the Southwestern Historic District, this house has its own listing on the NRHP. It was added to the NRHP in 1976.

Grout was an early version of concrete, used for construction, that was developed in Wisconsin. It can be found in several communities, usually used in the construction of dwellings. One such structure is an octagon house in Fond du Lac, the design of the house from Orson Fowler. Another octagon constructed from grout, the Jacob Woodruff House, is located on Liberty Street in Ripon.
