It is one of only two examples in Valley County of the traditional Czech house type known as Dvoutrakt dum. It is a one-story house with brick walls and a hipped roof.[2]

According to the NRHP nomination, Josef Bruha immigrated to Valley County in 1884 with his wife Anna Beran and six children from Kamýk [cs], Klatovy, Plzen in Bohemia. They came directly to Valley County, where members of the Beran family were already located, and Josef had partway built the house and had tilled 55 acres (22 ha) of land by 1885.[2]
