Stagg Hall is a one-story, gambrel-roofed frame dwelling over a full cellar. The original structure is a five-bay building, with an east wing addition connected by a small hyphen. A dendrochronological study was undertaken on the building in October 2015. Two of the timbers that were sampled were successfully dated, with one timber containing complete sapwood that provided a felling date of the winter of 1766/7.
