The site consists of a restorations and renovation of Hull's log cabin birthplace, which is an activities center and a museum housing documents and artifacts. The Cordell Hull Birthplace was listed on the NRHP in 1971 for its association with Secretary of State Cordell Hull who served in the Franklin D. Roosevelt Administration from 1933 to 1944.
