1. The Cider House Marker
Inscription.  
The original of this building was erected in October of 1829. It was used for the storage of fermented apple cider, some of which the Johnstons sold.

Hard cider could be kept from one harvest season to the next if stored under fairly constant temperature. In warm weather, air entering the building through the openings under the eaves forced hot air out the cupola on top of the roof. Cooler air entered at ground level through openings at the base of the walls. In winter, the doors in the walls and cupola were closed.
