1. Ice House, Warehouse and Mess Hall Marker
Inscription. At the northeast corner of Judge Carter's complex rose the log chinked ice house. Three doors at the southern side appeared one over the other, allowing this tall building of 18 feet 7 inches by 14 1/4 feet to be entered at all levels as the ice stock began to grow lower with the coming of warmer weather. Ice could be taken to the stone building next door, the two story warehouse and butcher shop-meat storage area. The lower story contained the beef and included a type of walk in freezer while the upper portion of this large 24 feet by 60 feet facility could hold stock such as dry goods. An "L" off the southeast corner provided spaces for Carter's employees to take their meals. Two windows and a center door faced to the east to provide light and some additional warmth from the morning sun. This side measured 32 feet while the shorter ends were 18 feet.
