Wilson Carriage House

The Carriage House and Courtyard

In 1899, transportation was still almost exclusively by horse and carriage. The Wilson's Carriage House, built in that year, originally had stalls for five horses and space for three vehicles. Tack was stored upstairs and feed for the animals was delivered there as well. In fact, each horse stall had a feed box situated directly beneath an opening in the ceiling. This opening could be uncovered and the animal's feed delivered directly into the feed box, an example of 19th Century efficiency. When the Carriage House was first built, it had two shed wings, which were enclosed during the rehabilitation to provide more space, although the early footprint of the building has been preserved. The brickwork in this courtyard was done in the mid-1980s. During the adaptive-use rehabilitation project, the Carriage House was moved closer to the back of the Wilson House in order to provide more room for parking
