John Marlor, English master builder, built this two-story clapboard, Federal style house, with regional adaptations. Featuring a Palladian double portico, the facade is further enhanced by fanlights with spread eagles at the base and dividers. Mantels have hand-carved sunburst motif and egg-shaped dentils; hand-grained woodwork remains in one parlor.
Stetson-Sanford House is owned by the Old Capital Historical Society.

Furnishings for the Children's Room have been arranged for by the Milledgeville Town Committee of The National Society of The Colonial Dames of America in the State of Georgia. These include a roped bedstead, feather bed, quilts, children's clothes, a 19th-century handmade high chair, a rocking horse, and trunk.
