Description 

A rather long Queenpost truss structure that has four wooden trestle supports under its deck. Barn red vertical board siding covers the sides and the portals and it has a sheet metal roof with a deck of crosswise planking. It also has three rectangular windows on each side in addition to the narrow eave openings. The structure rests on cut stone and mortar abutments that have been extended to form short, stone and mortar wing walls, one of which is capped with concrete.
