Cottage #1This 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.
