The second main building erected as part of the State Agricultural School, Payson originally served as the horticultural and dairy building. It is a small two-story rectangular brick building with much less architectural detailing than adjacent Cook Hall. Window lintels and most other devices to relieve the wall plans are of the same red brick, thereby giving the structure a more stolid appearance. Symmetrical on all sides, the main facade features a central bay set out from the building and containing the main entrance, which is heavily trimmed in Potsdam sandstone. A truncated hip roof is pierced by varying sized dormers.
