THE OLE’ MILKHOUSE

Long, long before there was air-conditioning and refrigeration, this was the only way that milk on the farm could be stored and preserved until the milk wagon could take it away for processing at the dairy.

This old Milk House was once a part of the farm the existed here more than 100 yrs. ago.  The small building has a room on the inside with a 4ft. x 7ft. long x 3ft. deep trough that held cold water that was drawn from the well using the hand pump to the left of the building.

This is the way Milk was stored back then.
