The 2.5 story stone building across Carroll Street from the main structure was apparently used as a secondary warehouse, as it is connected on the second story of both buildings with an enclosed walk-over. The stone warehouse has an old set of spur railroad tracks along the side of the structure opposite Commerce St., which dead-ends as the spur line continues in place of Commerce St.

The walk-over is labeled with Antiques. The stone warehouse is an antique emporium and the other connected mill is probably part of the antique complex.

"Your decendents will be known in every nation. All who see them will realize that they have been blessed, by me, the Lord."
