c. 1870s

A commissary was used by large ranches to provide supplies for their cowboys and ranch hands. The great distance to town created a need for food and supplies to be bought in bulk. They were then distributed at headquarters and to distant line camps. Stone walls kept the structure cool in the summer and protected supplies from freezing in winter. This commissary from Wichita County, Texas, was built so a block and tackle could help unload a freight wagon for storage in the loft. Smaller items were stored in the lower room.
