The historic farmstead is important as an example of the development of agriculture in Hunterdon County and consists of 40 acres of land and nine farm buildings. While the oldest building on the farm is a Georgian-styled residence constructed in the 1790s, a mid-19th-century bank barn and an early 20th-century milking barn are notable agricultural structures. The Hunterdon Land Trust acquired the property in 1999 and now utilizes the main house and the farmstead as its headquarters. 

The 2019 Trust grant helped fund rehabilitation of the bank barn and connected north ell for use as an event space. The 2017 grant helped fund the preparation of a structural assessment of seven outbuildings and the 2015 grant helped fund the replacement of the slate roof on the bank barn. Previous Trust grants helped fund site planning, archaeology, restoration of the farmhouse, and rehabilitation of a 19th-century wagon shed for use as a rustic classroom.
