The Carriage Barn was built on the foundation of an earlier stable in 1895 to house the Billings Family horses, carriages and sleighs. It was designed by the nephew of Frederick and Julia Billings, Ehrick Kensett Rossiter, of Rossiter and Wright Architects. The building has been adapted by the National Park Service for use as the park's headquarters and visitor center, with exhibits, a bookstore and a reading area.
