This circuit clerk's office was in a wing added to the east side of the Courthouse in 1838. In 1907, Aries Hill built this store between Courthouse and the Bushrod Crawford House where the circuit clerk's office had been. The door on the left leads to a staircase that serves both Hill and Crawford buildings.

For about thirty years, Hill operated a general store downstairs while residing upstairs. Later there was a pool hall and tavern here. Subsequent owners have operated a variety of businesses.

The front facade is stamped metal with decorative moldings on the upper windows and pediment. Many 20th century changes were made downstairs, but the upstairs residence remains virtually unchanged. It boasts decorative molding and arched windows, as well as skylights in the parlor and dining room.
