A one and one half story ashlar stone, hall-parlor house with a central gable indicative of the Gothic Revival style, this dwelling is one of the finest examples of pioneer architecture in Utah. The high level of craftsmanship and its design make it a significant example of residential architecture in Spring City. John Blain was born in Carlisle, England in 1850. His family settled in Spring City in 1863. Blain, a farmer, served on the city council and was town watermaster. Calvin and Rae Baxter purchased the house in 1988 and added the west wing designed to match the architecture of the original structure.
