The Francis P. Keilman House qualifies for placement on the National Register of Historic Places under Criterion C. The structure qualifies under Criterion C as a property that embodies the distinctive characteristics of a type, period, or method of construction. It is an excellent example of a traditional folk house form, the gable front house, ornamented with the application of Italianate styling. The home was built c.1857 with an addition made to the rear of the original house circa 1900. The home is in a well maintained condition retaining its architectural integrity, both exterior and interior, and would easily be recognized by Mr. Keilman today.
