Cottage #1

This cottage is the largest of the dwellings built by Barron, Forbes & Co. in the late 1840's. It contained four fireplaces and a large wood-burning basement stove used by servants to prepare meals. It was purchased in 1863 by New Almaden Quicksilver Mining Co. and earlier in 1856 housed the head mining engineers.

Dr. A.R. Randol, lived here in 1879, he having replaced Dr. Frederick V. Hopkins. The company accountant Robert Burnett Smith & his wife Anne Terhune Smith followed & they lived here through 1881. Anne was also a sister-in-law of J.B. Randol, the mine's manager from 1870 to 1892.
