It is a two-story brick house with simple Federal-style detailing, with brick laid in Flemish bond. It has an interior end brick chimney. Its front includes a c.1890 glass and frame door with a single-light transom. The interior includes original Federal-style fluted mantles.[2]

It was deemed "notable for its role in the commercial history of West Point. The building was constructed in 1823 for Abraham Ditto as an inn for river travellers. It is the one of the oldest buildings remaining in West Point and operated as the Ditto House in the mid-1800s. It was later known as the Riverview House before closing ca. 1870."[2][3]
