Mackey's Mill is a 1736 limestone structure of 40x80 foot dimensions. The very impressive and eye-pleasing building has catsheads on the roadside elevation and also on the south elevation. Two different styles of catsheads both terminate after three doors of height. Especially pleasing are the vertical brick lintels on those windows in the stone portion. Dormer windows are evident on all sides of the elegant mansard roof.
