The Garneau-Kilpatrick House is a three-story Romanesque style, brick and sandstone residence with an irregular plan. The arched front entry and use of rusticated stone as a belt course and to highlight window and door openings are indicative of the Romanesque Revival style. Joseph Garneau, Jr., vice president, treasurer and general manager of the Joseph Garneau Cracker Company, was the home's first owner. He lived there for only six years. In 1903, Thomas Kilpatrick, the owner of a successful dry goods business, purchased the home and resided there until his death in January 1916. The building was later divided up into apartments. In recent years, it has been home to a local chapter of the Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity.
