It includes a c. 1840 log dwelling and a c. 1880 wood framed main house, as well as numerous supporting outbuildings including a large barn (c. 1840), an icehouse/well house (c. 1880), a tenant house (c. 1880), the log dwelling (c. 1840), a small hay/tobacco barn (c. 1920), a garage (c. 1900), and three small sheds. Also on the property is a contributing truss bridge (c. 1915). The house is a two-story, three-bay frame I-house building with a hipped roof. A two-story half-hipped central rear ell was added in 1976. It is representative of a transitional Greek Revival / Italianate style. It features a one-story three-bay porch fronting the central entrance, and exterior-end brick chimneys.
