The two-chambered granary was used for storing threshed grain until it was either sold or consumed. The presence of two chambers indicates that the owner could grow two different crops and store them simultaneously. Grain was often transported across the Potomac River at Edwards Ferry, the southernmost river crossing in Loudoun County. The C & O Canal on the Maryland side of the river was also commonly used to transport Virginia grown crops throughout Maryland into Washington, D.C.
