Other information: A Queen Anne-style cure cottage. The south side consists of a one-story, engaged cure porch, enclosed with sliding glass windows. A smaller cure porch is located on the second story, above the eastern portion of the first-floor porch. The number of bedrooms and cure porches suggests its use as a sanatorium.

The cottage is named for an early owner, Hosea Colbath. It was registered in the village in 1906 and with the T.B. Society in the early twentieth century.

34 River Street was also referred to as the Colbath Cottage.
