The district contains nine contributing buildings and three contributing structures. The complex includes both natural and structural facilities. It includes a mill race from Kortright Creek to the Mill Pond which supplies the waterwheel, a spillway for the pond's overflow, a section of old (1900) New York Central Railroad track, two railroad bridges crossing Kortright Creek, and a variety of buildings. The main structure is a mill building dating to the 1820s with additions from the 1870s, 1880s, and 1890s. The four-story wood-frame structure is approximately 150 feet long and 120 feet high.
