shops and for storage. The building was surmounted by a picturesque cupola from which a fine view of the surrounding country could be obtained. This cupola or observation tower was a feature of the landscape for so many years that it seemed to many of us to be a permanent part of the scene from a distance.

In addition to the Main Building, which was opened formally on July 4, 1873, the various necessary buildings such as laundry, stable and carriage house, and servants’ quarters; were erected. There also was a cold storage building and a large icehouse in which was stored each winter about 25 carloads of ice, usually secured from breweries or other large manufacturers of artificial ice. Nearby was a building containing pool and billiard rooms and bowling alleys. Just beyond this was constructed, about 1887, a large building, with glass roof, containing two swimming pools, one for men, the other for women and children. Each pool was about 30 by 60 feet, with a maximum depth of nine feet in the men's pool and six feet in the other. Also provided were Turkish and Russian baths. Here Captain William H. Dryden, a professional stunt swimmer and instructor, gave swimming lessons. Each year, assisted by his pupils and his daughter Lola, he gave a very interesting swimming exhibition.
