- While early houses are well documented through historical records, diaries and even many still-standing examples, many accessory buildings are neglected. Privvies, smoke houses and well houses were rarely recognized in records, and because of their gradual disuse are now rare in their original form. A well house in Sturbridge, Mass., while not on its original foundations, provides welcome insight for historical home enthusiasts.
