Summary

Significance: This building was erected as a part of the improvement of facilities at the Home during a building campaign of the 1880's. The growing member population at the Home prompted the expansion of the facility during this period to accommodate the increase among its resident population. Constructed in 1889, it is the building that retained the longest original use at the Home, ceasing function in 1997.
