The Hoehns House is a two-story brick house featuring interior end chimneys and a three-room plan on the first floor. The fireplaces have arched mantel shelves typical of early Moravian architecture. An outstanding feature of the house is its Flemish bond brickwork that incorporates glazed headers and gable ends laid in herringbone pattern (Stephens Taylor 1981).

Dendrochronological analysis has shown that the original structure was built in the winter of 1797/98 or shortly thereafter.
