It has a reverse L-shaped plan and is about 275 feet (84 m) wide in its main facade, running north-south. It is about 60 feet (18 m) and 105 feet (32 m) deep on its north and south ends. It is built of load-bearing red brick walls, in running stretcher bond in the original 1917 section, and with structural clay tile with brick veneer in the 1924 and 1938 sections.
