The Tool Building

The Tool Building, built in 1906, has seen many changes throughout its life. Since 1906 it has housed a full workshop, blacksmith, carpenter's workshop, and machine shop. All of this was necessary to fix the tractors that Glessner was the first to bring from the flat Midwest. Now it is often used educational programs and other events throughout the year. The building at the left end of the Tool Building was added later and used to store ice, which was brought up from Baker Brook.
