Pagoda Pump House

The pump house was constructed by the Endicott-Johnson Corporation workers in the 1920s with the scraps from the factories.   In its facade are broken gears,  a fire extinguisher, a bowling pin and at one time a revolver.   It was built around a water well and used to pump water to the steam plant for the factories.  It was built in to look like a pagoda because is is said that C.Fred Johnson, who was in charge of the facilities, just happened to like the style.
