The limestone house dates to 1793, the original structure reflecting the typical architectural style of the period. The ell added to the back of the house ( c.1810) and porch (c.1880) illustrate the evolution of building styles. The interior plastering, woodwork and flooring are examples of early craftsmanship.

The original house was built by Scots-Irish immigrant Samuel Dale and occupied by his family until the 1850s, leased to tenant farmers until 1929, when it was sold to Jacob and Maude Engle. The Engles operated a dairy farm on the property from 1936 to 1944. Charles and Rosemary Walker, owners from 1957 to 2000, maintained a farm on site.

The Walker estate bequeathed the property to the Union County Historical Society. New to the site is the c.1789 Kantz Log Cabin, a gift of Marcia Milne. The cabin exemplifies the kind of dwelling that was on the site before the limestone house was built. Also on site is a replica Wagon Shed with a display of vintage farm implements, and the restored dairy shed.

Tours of the historic site are free although donations are gratefully accepted. The house will next host tours on Sundays June 26, July 3, 10, 17 and 24, September 4 and 25, and October 9.
