This building was formerly a Toll House built in the early 19th century. It was said to have had a copper roof hence the name. It was built in a Gothic style with a castellated parapet and tall Gothic windows. The round end faces the road which is typical for toll houses. The toll keeper had to be able to see down the road in order to make sure travellers stopped and paid the toll. It was used as the Headquarters of the Paving Trust Fund.
