A wonderful look at Creamery Buildings And Ice-Houses including photos and building plans found in the Tenth Biennial Report of the Kansas State Board of Agriculture to the Legislature of the State for the Years 1895 and 1896. We've clipped this article out of the volume (You can view then entire volume here) to make viewing easier. Scroll through this article with great photos and plans to get a view of agriculture in the late 19th Century, available at the State Library of Kansas' KGI Online Library.
