Significance: The Warington tobacco barn is the best surviving example of a mid-19th century tobacco barn in Prince George's County. It exhibits features of early barn construction such as hewn and pegged posts and beams, hand-split vertical board siding and a steeply pitched gable-on-hip roof. Barns such as this were once a common feature of Prince Georges' rural landscape, but few early barns exist today. The barn was constructed ca. 1840-1850 by Marsham Waring, one of the most successful tobacco planters in the county.
