Seton Belt Barn, West Side of Church Road, north of Central Avenue (Route 214), Mitchellville, Prince George's County, MD
Significance: The Seton Belt Barn is a unique, decorative example of a late 19th-century multi-use barn. The venture of a wealthy planter, William Seton Belt, the barn exhibits decorative features of Victorian-era architecture such as the jerkinhead roof, cupolas, and use of board-and-batten siding. It was part of the large landholdings of the Belt family, who retained possession of this tract from the 1860s until 1959. The Belts built two barns of this type during the same time period, one hear at the home farm and the other nearby at Belmont.
