From the late 18th century or early 19th century
This stone Structure may be what was called a cheese house in the tax roll and advertisements. Its masonry walls and proximity to the farm’s water source would make it a convenient place to process and store milk into butter and cheese. Dairy work is all about cleanliness, and ready access to freshwater for cleaning wooden dairy equipment was essential to successful dairying. This building has seen several replacement roofs and its original configuration is unknown. The mortar used in its construction is lime-based, however, which suggests an initial construction date possibly in the late 18th century.
