Wyoming Farm is a one-and-a-half story structure with a gambrel roof, five bays and a basement kitchen. A two-story wing connects the main house to the formally separate kitchen building.
Dendrochronological analysis has shown that the kitchen was constructed from timbers felled in the winter of 1816/7 and the spring of 1817. Neither the primary house nor the wing were found to date.
