Notes
Survey number HABS MN-146-I
Significance: In 1917, wealthy Chicagoan David Gage Joyce erected a complex of buildings on Trout Lake to serve as a family summer resort. A description of the Joyce Estate, published in 1922, notes that the sleeping cottages in the Main Cabin Compound were connected to a "compressed air" water system, which means that a pump house of some sort was among the early facilities. It is uncertain, however, if the present Pump House was in existence at that time, although its wood-frame, drop-sided construction resembles other utility buildings erected at the estate during the 1920s, such as the Golf Course Pump House. The Main Pump House apparently remained in service until the estate passed from the Joyce Family ownership in 1973. It is currently vacant. ... The Main Pump House is a diminutive, rectangular-plan, one-story, gable-front building of utilitarian design.
