Paymaster's Building -- Cornwall Village

This small building sits directly across the street from the Cornwall Iron Furance, and several hundred yards in front of the Cornwall Mansion.   It was the Paymaster's Building, circa 1860 .... the place where the men who worked in the iron furance went to collect their pay.   You can't help but wonder about the things that might have transpired within these walls.   Did pay day bring a bit of happiness to the men who worked this hard, hard job ... or was pay day just further misery.  You hear so much about unjust and unfair treatment of workers, so you can't help but wonder .....  I hope that the walls saw moments of happiness.
