Built ca. 1890, with additions prior to 1920. It is a medium gable, one-story frame house with shingled walls and a rear cinder block lean-to kitchen addition. There is a small front porch with turned posts and on the left side a stucco bedroom addition. Ed Fleming was a fine rock mason and worked on many of the vacation homes in the mountains. His specialty was native moss rock fireplaces. He also rodeoed with "the gang" and worked at the Rooney Coal Mine. He served on the Morrison Town Board for many years and was highly regarded in the Morrison community. The house is still a residence.
