The Britton/Rapp Barn is a seven-bay, ground-level, swing beam barn with a two-bay haw mow, two wagon entry bays, a bay for stabling horses, and a bay for stabling cows/ small livestock.
Dendrochronological analysis has shown that the barn was built from timbers felled over a short period of time from the summer of 1827 through to the summer of 1832.
