The one-and-one-half-story Yoder house, built in 1920-1921, is an excellent example of a Craftsman styled bungalow, with its broad gable roof, widely overhanging eaves, gabled front dormer with truss work ornament in the gable peak, and wraparound porch. Sheathing material varies from the replacement aluminum siding of the first story to the coursed wood shingles of the upper story. The porch boasts heavy granite posts and a low granite wall, quarried from Mt. Airy, NC. A shallow bay projects from the west elevation, and two interior chimneys pierce the roof ridge.
In 1986 the Yoder House was listed on the National Register of Historic Places as a contributing building with the Claremont High School Historic District.
