Madison Barracks Building
Hope M. of Perceptionphotography.biz writes: "In my recent research I found that the red brick building at Sackets Harbor was built in 1892 and used as an Administrative Building until 1905, then it was used as the Main Mess Hall. The Grey Limestone building was a hospital."

Roberta D. Calhoun-Eagan writes "My grandfather's great-grandfather, Chauncey Calhoun (1776-1856), was one of the three original carpenters for the Madison Barracks (The others were Joseph Kimball and Philo Johnson). The work commenced in 1816, but the workers were not paid but in IOU's. It literally took an Act of Congress twenty years later (An Act for the Relief of Jesse Smith and others) for Calhoun to receive payment for this work. Chauncey Calhoun also was one of the many carpenters who constructed the Old Ship House that housed the New Orleans in Sackets Harbor until the mid 1880s."

(This picture was originally incorrectly identified as a wall of Fort Pike)
Tim Abel says: "This isn't the Fort Pike wall. The wall that's there was built during the 1880s Madison Barracks build-up. The only structure of the original Fort Pike is the earthen embankment." and "That stone wall (actually its the bed rock face) is what they used to use for Tommy gun practice!"

Panoramic shot of the old Taggart Brothers Company Paper Mill ruins on the Black River, off from West Main Street in Watertown, across from corner of Bradley Corner, photo taken from across the river on Newell Street (the above picture is only a partial thumbnail of the whole panorama, click to see the entire photo).

Old photo (above) and drawing (below)
Taggart Brothers Paper Mill
Taggart and Davis' Paper Mill and Paper Flour Sack Manufactory consisted of a three-story stone main building and a wing, a pulp mill, and a store house.  The main building (not including the wing) was 200 x 75 feet in size, the store house 120 x 30 feet.  The original mill  was built in 1845 by W.H. Angel, and was first used as a flouring mill and distillery, then later as a cotton and woolen mill.
When the Taggart Brothers (W.W. and B.B.) and O.R. Davis ran it a  total of thirteen water wheels were used.  The mill at that time employed over 75 people who manufactured 5,000 pounds of news and manila paper each day, with 50,000 paper bags being made from the manila paper each day (the brown paper bag was invented in Watertown).  The mill was doing $300,000 a year in business.
Also see the photos of the ruins of the "Island Mill" in Felts, built by the Taggart Paper Mill Company.

Scannerman writes "What the Taggarts invented was not the brown paper bag that is used for shopping, but the multi-layers paper bag used for flour, sugar, etc. There was a huge demand due to the shortage of burlap after the Civil War, from which such bags were previously made."
