This building is believed to have been built circa 1880. Earliest photographic evidence of it is dated 1889. Speculation on its use rules out well house based on existence of original floor or as some would have it, a bandstand, based on full enclosure with in walls. Mid-20th century photo shows it once housed a welding shop.
