The Joseph S. Hunter house is significant as an example of Utah vernacular architecture.

The first section of the house, built in 1866 is a one and a half story brick example of the Central Hall vernacular type. The east fa├žade displays distinctive wall dormers. The original house has gable-end chimneys and exhibits common brick bonding and relieving arched windows. Decorative features include a plan entablature, gable end cornice returns, gable and dormer finals, and elliptical fanlights in the dormers. The mixing of Greek and Gothic Revival stylistic elements is commonly encountered on vernacular houses of this type.
