It includes the farmhouse (1817), Sweitzer barn (1847), summer kitchen (c. 1840), and wagon shed (c. 1870). Also on the property are a woodshed, hog barn, poultry house, and seed house, all built about 1920; a metal windmill dated to 1909; and the site of an early 19th-century woolen mill and millrace.
