The Civil War at Endview
— A living history museum —In the South, dairy buildings were small structures, usually 14 feet square with a gable roof. The buildings' overhanging eaves, louvered ventilators, and insulated walls were designed to keep the milk cool inside. Milk was placed in shallow tubs for approximately ten hours until the cream separated and rose to the surface. Slaves collected the cream and churned it into butter. Dairy buildings were a measure of affluence, as milk, butter, and cream were luxuries of the planter class.
