The house is best recognized for its preserved family memorabilia and furnishings. The NRHP listing documentation notes that although it is "a somewhat static setting" externally, "the interior design of the house is notable for both its excellence and integrity". It includes not merely many period architectural features but also period decoration and contents, which together make it "one of the most valuable national documents of mid-nineteenth century taste". It is one of several historic buildings in Natchez which adopted the Greek Revival style and which maintain significant historic interiors. The NRHP presumes the construction date 1836, but later evidence determines 1838. An adjacent building which served as a kitchen and servants' quarters was later adjoined to the house by the Koontzes. Koontz moved into the area from Pennsylvania in 1836 and joined in business partnership with William Audley Britton that same year. The bank, named Britton & Koontz Bank, merged with Home Bancorp, Inc. , a Lafayette, Louisiana banking company in 2014.
