The Curlee House is a three-bay-wide, one-story white stucco structure based on the traditional double-pile formula with a broad central passage. It exhibits a late, attenuated version of Greek Revival styling that has a strongly Italianate character, although the house is not bracketed. Following the Battle of Shiloh, the house was the headquarters of Confederate generals Braxton Bragg and Earl Van Dorn and Union General Halleck. In 1875, the house was purchased by W.P. Curlee and again in 1921, by S.H. Curlee, founder of the Curlee Clothing Company. Now operated as a house museum.
