When the breeze died, mules, horses or oxen plodded an endless circle in the sun while slaves fed cane to the rollers. A box at the base caught and held the juice until the factory called for more.

In the early 1900's, after the sugar industry declined, a cattle farmer built the cookhouse on the far side of the platform.
