Inscription.  This building handled the overflow and storage of pottery, and was in use by the potter from 1756 until 1771. When the cellar was being excavated in the 1960s, large fragments of pottery and many Lovefeast mugs were found lying on the floor--apparently having been discarded by the potter.

"Br. Aust burned stove tiles, and when they were ready he set up stoves in the Gemeinhaus and the Brothers House, probably the first in Carolina."
Bethabara Diary, November of 1756.
 
Erected by Historic Bethabara Park.
