Caption: The Carriage House
Additional Description: From signage inside of building:
This carriage house was used by three generations of Fischers to house their horse-drawn vehicles and with the progression of time, the modern day motor vehicle. Vehicle entrance was from the back alley.
Fischer history indicates that at one time the carriage house was rented to a cobbler for his place of business. During restoration of the building, remnants of leather used in the cobblers trade were found.
The carriage house was used very much the same as a current-day garage – shelter for vehicles, storage, repair of home furnishings, etc.
