This building was part of the original Wigwam built in the 1870's. The building was built on sloping ground. It had two floors with the long banqueting hall and conservatory on the top floor and stabling and carriages below. The brick towers housed the coachmens' rooms and workshops etc. The remains of this building are located to one side of the rotunda; note the edge of the rotunda on the far right of the picture.
