It was built around 1894 of timber in the Jamaican Georgian architectural style. It has two floors. The ground floor has timber doors and sash windows. The upper floor is partially cantilevered and is supported by a series of timber posts on the ground floor to form a canopy over the platform and front elevation. The upper floor has a mixture of sash and louvred windows as well as recessed panel timber doors. The roof of the structure is a T-shaped gable end zinc roof with a semi-circular fanlight on either side of a double gable end section of the roof.

In 2003 it was reported as being in "very poor condition" and "in need of major repairs".

It is on the list of designated National Heritage Sites in Jamaica.
