The house is used as a civic center and is operated by the Allen House Board. The house is a classic Greek revival style and the front of the house is dominated by ten Ionic two-story columns and a wrought iron Greek patterned balcony. The entry is a beveled glass door flanked by leaded-beveled glass sidelights and overlights. Floors throughout the house are oak. The original brass chandeliers are still in the house. In the center of the house is the impressive staircase featuring the original stained glass window at the first landing. This restored mansion is set among majestic oak trees and indeed is a sight for all to see.
