milk house

Before the 19th century, a small subsidiary structure in which milk and other dairy products were stored at a lowered temperature with cooling usually provided by slowly running cold spring water or the runoff from an icehouse; typically had overhanging eaves to shade it, and double walls and ceiling filled with a thermal insulator, such as sawdust; commonly had a concrete floor to promote cleanliness and louvers for ventilation; was separated from the barn for reasons of sanitation. This term replaced by the word dairy in the 1800s; health regulations have now made such structures obsolete.
