It features projecting end pavilions, arched openings, and a large stone Gothic entryway. It was named for president of the Colonial Dames of Pennsylvania and Flag Day founder Elizabeth Duane Gillespie.

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1989. The building is now vacant, although it is immediately south of the still-occupied Simon Gratz High School.
