The Hubbard House is located north of Deli-Serv and across the street from the Amoco station on the east side of Main Street.
There is a full length hip-roofed porch with a pediment at the south end, across the facade. Five stick posts support the roof and a stick balustrade trims the porch. On
the first story are twwo south doors, to accommodate this two-family house, and a north side window. Two windows complete the second story and a small vertical window is
located in the fully-pedimented gable. The gable ends, which swoop outward to form a large overhang appearing on the facade gable and the two north and south story
additions, are unusual features.
The Reuben Hubbard House, built ca. 1903, is an aluminum sided, 2 1/2 story, twentieth-century
domestic building. The balloon framing rests on a field-stone foundation and is topped by a steep asphalt gable roof with an off-center east side chimney.
A farmer, Reuben Hubbard (1835-1914) and his brother Eli purchased a seven-acre plot of land in 1877 and seven years later sold the piece to another fanrer, Asahel Nettleton.
When Nettleton died in 1900, Reuben Hubbard purchased the land and built a house and barn, and in 1905 sold the lot to Walter Wilcox.
Built at the turn of the century as a two-family house, the Reuben Hubbard House marks an important change in Durham.
