Statement of Significance (as of designation - November 13, 1966):
An 18th-century street market, it was used well into the 19th century. Two rows of brick pillars support a gable roof and arched ceiling over an open market area.

The structure was restored in 1994 by the Head House Conservancy non-profit organization. As a result, only minor work is required at this time. The masonry columns supporting the market shed need repointing and the ceiling needs repainting. Ongoing maintenance is required. Current Priority Status: Not damaged or threatened
