With the firehouse post some wondered where they got their water from to fight fires. Well nearby the firehouse was this hydrant. But that really doesn't answer the question for I do not know of any water works department or pump station anywhere in the town. So where did water under pressure come from to feed this hydrant? There may have been lines coming in from nearby mountains connected to underground springs. I really don't know.
For most homes, this was the extent of their plumbing. There just wasn't any.
