Originally on an isolated site facing East Ave, but now hemmed in by later construction, the magnificent main facade, with its massive twin towers flanking the glass curtain wall of the shed between, is now obstructed by Statler Hall. A secondary entrance is at the rear on Garden Ave. The roof is covered in asphalt shingles. The walls are gray-brown stone with creamy limestone window frames. Barton is one of Cornell's first buildings in collegiate Gothic style and was built during World War I for military training. The Norman Gothic vocabulary is distinctly plain and appropriately militaristic. The windows are deeply set in thick masonry walls. Ornament is kept to a minimum. Lancet windows and crenellations are used. The clear span under the steel-framed shed roof is the largest at Cornell.
