As an indication of his wealth and influence William Carter provided three buildings not commonly available to the average person on the American frontier. The first frame building served the family as a private school. It measured a mere 11 feet 3 inches by 14 feet 3 inches. Here the six children of Judge Carter received their rudiments of education. The adjacent stone structure was a milk house, an 11 feet by 16 1/2 feet processing and storage facility for luxury dairy products. The third building, a wash house, a 20 feet 2 inches by 11 feet 5 inches frame affair, made it possible for the Carters to bath in relative comfort and also to have the servants do the wash. Inside this small edifice is a "washing machine," a new invention on the frontier. The wall of all these buildings rose less than 10 feet.
