They include a 2 1/2-story, five bay by two bay, vernacular Federal-style farmhouse (1829); 1 1/2-story, tenant house / blacksmith shop; Pennsylvania bank barn; wagon shed; cider house; and quarry house. The contributing structures are a bake oven, ground cellar, and large stone and earthen dam on Maiden Creek. The contributing sites are the Pennsylvania Bluestone quarry and cemetery.
