The barn is a standard three-bay Pennsylvania bank barn overlooking the valley to the southwest. It includes an upper level timber-frame threshing floor and a lower stone level with two feed aisles and four animal stalls.

Dendrochronological analysis has shown that the barn was built from timbers felled in the winter of 1833/4.
