Here cattle would have been gathered for shelter from the severe winter cold. Later, when the farm established a small dairy enterprise, Jersey cows would have been brought here from the pasture to await their turn to be milked. They would have been fed grain while they were being milked. Straw and hay from the upper part fo the barn also could be thrown down to them through an opening in the floor. Three of the foundation walls (east, west, and south) are double-walls, with finished (cut) stones facing both inward and outward. The space between the inner and outer row of cut stones was filled with mortar. The rear wall (north) is only one stone thick and is not comprised of cut stones.
