Originally built as a watch house (wacht stube), in 1860, this structure has been used for a variety of purposes. The umbrella shop (schirm shop) was housed in this building for a period of time. Later the building housed the farmers' chicken shed (farmers' h├╝hnerstall). The local farmers (non-Society) would bring their chickens to the Amana Store to be sold. The Store would hold the chickens in this structure until prices were optimum. This building was used as a warehouse in the 1930's. From 1942 to 1954, the Amana Post Office was located here. The belfry was added in July, 1936.
