Picture 34 of 69

The storehouse provided secure storage for hundreds of items such as tools and nails used by carpenters, leather and thread for the cobbler, powder and shot for the huntsmen, and blankets and clothes worn by the slaves.

The clerk's quarters provided a residence and office for Washington's secretary. After the presidency, this office was filled by Albin Rawlings, who assisted Washington with his correspondence and served as his business agent, helping to run enterprises such as the gristmill.
