This structure has some relationship to an 18th century Moravian structure from Winston-Salem - what I've heard has varied from 1) the structure was disassembled and rebuilt on this site, with new siding or 2) the structure was disassembled with the intention of reassembling on this site, but the builder and county couldn't see eye to eye on the framing and current code, so the structure is entirely new (perhaps with some of those original elements included in some non-structural form) but built to the dimensions/plan of the original.

Regardless, it's certainly distinctive and appears Moravian with its vertical character. Given its elevation on the 'west hill' and its intrinsic height, it is one of the more visible structures from Occoneechee Mountain.
