This front-gabled, frame duplex is four bays wide and five bays deep with fiber cement siding, vinyl windows, and flush eaves. Two entrances, centered on the façade, are sheltered by a shed-roofed porch on square posts. An uncovered terrace extends the full width of the façade beyond the porch. While occupants appear at this address as early as 1945, the current building likely dates to the 1990s.

The county deed records are sketchy.  According to the City Directory in 1945, William Bibby rented one side of the property and the property was owned by Leroy Frasier Sr.  Mr. Frasier lived at 2111 Duncan Street.  The City Directory in 1950 shows the occupants as renters.  Even though the duplex is in the College Heights District, it is a non-contributing building due to its extensive renovation.

County deed records show that on March 14, 1987, Margaret K. Goodwin, executor of the estate and trustee under the will of Mary K. Clay, who died in July 12, 1978, transferred to property to Ralph K. Frasier, Jr., Gail Spaulding Frasier Griffin, Karen Frasier Alston and husband, Larry Alston, and Keith Lowery.  On March 1997, the heirs transferred the property solely to Ralph Frasier, Jr.  The Kennedy and Frasier families are related.  Ralph Frasier, Jr. is the grandson of Leroy B. Frasier, Sr. of Duncan Street.

On March 27, 1997, Jessie A. Frasier was added to the title with Ralph Frasier, Jr. and his wife, Erica Frasier.  Erica Frasier subsequently transferred her part of the property to Ralph Frasier, Jr.

On January 18, 2013, Ralph Frasier Jr. sold the property to Jessie A. Jeffers. who is the current owner.  The duplex is rental property.
