(Cottage No. 4)

Robert Scott, a native of Canada, arrived in New Almaden in 1864. He was co-inventor of the Huttner & Scott Furnace in 1876, the furnace that revolutionized the reduction of quicksilver and saved the Quicksilver Mining Company from bankruptcy. This furnace, because of improvements by him, later became known as the Scott Furnace.

Scott married in 1861 and, with his bride, moved into Cottage No. 4, living there until 1895. He then moved into the house he built at 498 South 11th Street, San Jose.
