The first floor has a rough-cut stone exterior, while the floors above are built of smooth-cut gray stone. The interior has polished marble floors and walls, with a rotunda surrounded by a balcony. The dome has both a colored glass skylight and a fine brass electrolier.
The Crow Wing Historical Society Museum is located in the former sheriff's residence and jail.
