Inscription. The smaller adobe outbuilding was constructed by Granville Wheat and appears on an 1869 army map of Florence. The flat earthen roof was replaced with a rare mono-pitched waterproof metal roof. The original door and wood frame remain. Wheat was a Butterfield Stage driver and came to Florence in 1868. Wheat, listed as a farmer in the 1870 census, was the first elected sheriff of Pima County and an early Pinal County Supervisor. The building may have been an ice house when George A. Brown owned it later.
