As the single residence remaining on Greenville's primary downtown thoroughfare, the Wetherbee House is a rare example of the modest cottage type of domestic architecture common to this town in the decades following the Civil War. It stands as a concrete reminder of the town's post-war re-establishment as a commercial center for the Delta region.

This building was individually listed on the National Register on 28 October 1977. It was later included as a previously-listed element (element #99) within the enlarged Greenville Commercial Historic District (Boundary Increase 1), which was placed on the National Register on 14 November 2012. It was designated a Mississippi Landmark on 22 March 2002.

It is included in "Old Homes of Mississippi, Volume II: Columbus and the North" (1977) (pp. 145-146).
