The far eastern portion of this building (behind the fountain), minus the former garages of c.1945 - 2010, later known as the "garage apartment", was the original outbuilding that went with the Samuel Slaughter mansion at 208 Chemung street. For more history on the owners of the property see our Main House - Mansion page.

Former "garage apartment" and garages, circa 1947 to 2010. The garages were added onto the west end of this original outbuilding around 1947 when Mrs. Mary Fralick was converting the estate into an apartment complex. Because of the garages that were added onto this building, many people confuse this building with the former carriage house and or think that the garage areas were the former stables. The former carriage house is at 9 Athens street, and the carriage house most likely doubled as a stables. We believe this could be true, for we found remnants of hay in the attic of 9 Athens street and found a few stall doors that were highly likely taken from 9 Athens street and re-used in the basement of main house, at 208 Chemung street. The former garages are now being used for storage.

Inside of this former outbuilding, under the floor of the upper former "garage apartment" are several boards with S. W. Slaughter's name and Waverly, NY written on them:

Aug. 24, 1894 - Samuel Wickham Slaughter died from Bright’s disease (Nov. 8, 1837 - Aug. 24, 1894) 56 years of age.

August 25, 1894 Elmira Daily Gazette And Free Press -  Waverly, N. Y.  Aug. 25 - S. W. Slaughter, one of Waverly's foremost citizens, died at his home on (208) Chemung street last evening of Bright’s disease after a long illness. He leaves of his immediate family a wife and baby girl to mourn his loss. He was for years engaged in the drug business in this town, and was always ready with his influence and money to forward any movement for the public good and his private generosity to the needy is known to every one. In his death Waverly suffers a severe loss. He was at the time of his death vice president and also director of the Citizen's bank. He was also a director in the Waverly Water Works Company and the Hall & Lyons furniture company. His funeral will probably be held Monday afternoon, and his remains will be taken to Goshen for burial. He was a member of the Tioga hose company and probably the entire fire department will attend the funeral in a body. Rev. J. L. Taylor, of Cleveland, Ohio, the former pastor of the Presbyterian church at this place, will officiate at the service which will be held at the house. (In 1898, his remains were brought back to Waverly and buried in Glenwood cemetery. His grave site is underneath the branches of an European Copper Beech tree, just as his former house was under the branches of an European Copper Beech tree at 208 Chemung street, until in the fall of 2023, when we had to have the tree taken down. See European Copper Beech page.)

Aug. 25, 1894 Middletown Daily Press - Samuel Wickham Slaughter, a native of Orange County, died at his home in Waverly, N. Y., Friday night. He was the son of Dewitt Slaughter and Caroline Mills, who went from this county to Waverly several years ago. Deceased was a druggist and a prominent citizen of Waverly. He is survived by his wife, who was Charlotte Wells, daughter of Alfred Wells, of the town of Goshen, and by one child about four years of age. Dr. T. D. Mills of this city is a cousin of the deceased. The funeral will be held at the Scotchtown Presbyterian church, Tuesday afternoon at 2 o’clock.

Waverly, N.Y. Aug. 28. - The funeral of the late S. W. Slaughter was held from the elegant home on Chemung street yesterday afternoon at 4 o'clock, and was very largely attended by the representative people of Waverly, who had gathered to pay their last respects to the deceased. The service was opened by the entire congregation repeating the Lord’s Prayer in concert. The Rev. P. R. Ross then read the 90th Psalm, after which the Rev. J. L. Taylor of Cleveland, O., who was for many years pastor of the Presbyterian church at this place, and who was very intimately acquainted with Mr. Slaughter, made a very feeling and appropriate address. He said that instead of standing and talking to the friends and mourners it seemed to him more appropriate that he should set with them and listen to some one else. His relationship to the deceased had been so near and so intimate that he could scarcely control himself to speak in regard to it. He told how Mr. Slaughter came to Waverly as a boy, and after his marriage he had united with the Presbyterian church when the Rev. Mr. Bates was pastor, at the time when one hundred and twenty made a public profession and joined the church, and from that day he had been an earnest Christian, quiet and unassuming, yet always one of God's noblemen and that his life, though he be dead, speaketh. Our sorrow and tears are not for him, for he is better off, for he has gone to God; our sorrow is for the wife and fatherless child. After his talk Mr. Taylor offered prayer. Rev. P. R. Ross, the present pastor, read from Paul's first Epistle to the Corinthians, the xv chapter, commencing with the 26th verse. He then introduced the Rev. Dr. Jenkins of Sioux City, Mich., a friend of Mr. Slaughter's boyhood, and his remarks were mostly confined to that period of his life, and in a very beautiful manner he portrayed it. The Rev. C. M. Surdam pronounced the benediction. The remains were taken to Goshen for interment on Erie train No. 12 last night. There will be a memorial service next Sunday morning at the Presbyterian church. (In June of 1898, his remains, after resting in a vault in Phillipsburg cemetery, were brought back to Waverly in Glenwood Cemetery for burial.)

Aug. 30, 1894 The Goshen Democrat - From the Waverly Democrat of Aug. 29th. Obituary. Samuel Wickham Slaughter - Earth’s transitory things decay; Its pomps, its pleasure pass away; But the sweet memory of the good, Survives in the vicissitude, So through the ocean-tide of years, The memory of the just appears; So through the tempest and the gloom, The good man’s virtues light the tomb. Samuel Wickham Slaughter died at his home, corner of Chemung and Athens streets, this village on Friday evening last at five minutes before seven, after a week’s severe illness, although he had been in failing health for nearly six months. In his death Waverly loses its wealthiest, as well as one of its most prominent and public spirited men. In a quiet way, his life work was devoted to doing good, and his open and liberal purse was ever ready to aid those in need. His charity however, took on no manifestations, and it was his little deeds, done in his private life that made him the friend of the poor and the servant of the needy. Mr. Slaughter was born in Hamptonburg, Orange county, N. Y., November 8, 1837. He was the son of Dewitt Slaughter, and the second child of a family of five. He received his education at the Chesterfield and Middletown academies. In 1857 Mr. Slaughter, with his father and sister, Nettie, came to Waverly to reside, the children attending the Waverly high school. After having completed his education, he engaged in the drug business on the spot where the Corner Drug Store now stands, the firm name being Slaughter & Bosworth. At the end of a year H. H. Hayes purchased the Bosworth interest, and the firm of Slaughter & Hayes existed until 1873, when Mr. Slaughter was married to Miss Charlotte Wells of Goshen. With Mrs. Slaughter to Waverly came a brother, Eugene Wells, who bought out Mr. Hayes, and this partnership existed till 1881, when Mr. Wells died. Mr. Slaughter then took in John C. VanAtta as a partner, and a few years later himself retired from active business life. When the Waverly Water Co., was organized Mr. Slaughter was one of its principal projectors, and at the time of his death he was one of the heaviest stockholders. He was also vice president of the Citizens Bank and a director of the Hall & Lyon Furniture company. In the Presbyterian church he was one of the most active members, and principally through his energy and liberality was the handsome new structure erected. Probably no man ever laid down life’s burdens surrounded by more friends and associates. Quiet and unassuming in his manner, he was never heard to speak disparagingly of anyone and was alert to eke out the good qualities of whoever might be discussed before him. In his liberality he used keen judgement and sound mind. If a case of deserving poor or need came to his notice he was quick to investigate its exact condition, and render aid as the necessity of the case seem to dictate. Waverly will miss him publicly, socially and financially. His death leaves a vacuum that will ever remain vacant to the cherished memory of his good and kindly deeds. In an elegant home he lived, having occupied himself years in its building and here he died, surrounded by fond friends, a loving wife, and a little daughter four years of age. Funeral services were conducted on Monday at four o’clock by the Rev. Peter R. Ross, pastor of the First Presbyterian church of this place assisted by John L. Taylor of Cincinnati. The remains were taken to Middletown, N. Y. on train No. 12 Monday night, from whence they were conveyed to the little village of Scotchtown, where they were interred Tuesday afternoon in the family plot.
(In June of 1898, his remains, after resting in a vault in Phillipsburg cemetery, were brought back to Waverly in Glenwood Cemetery for burial.)

September 1, 1894 The Waverly Free Press: Samuel W. Slaughter. The death of Mr. Samuel W. Slaughter, whose serious illness was briefly mentioned in the Free Press last week, occurred at his home on Friday night, at about 7 o'clock. Mr. Slaughter was born November 8, 1837, and had lived in Waverly about forty years. He engaged in the drug business about thirty-five years ago, and has been for years closely identified with the best interests of the village. He was succeeded in the drug business by John C. VanAtta, a few years ago, but he was director in the Waverly Water Co., and also in the Hall & Lyon Furniture Co., and was vice president of the Citizens Bank, at the time of his death. He was a man of large wealth which he used conscientiously for the bettering of his fellowmen, and his integrity of character was unquestioned. He was a consistent member of the Presbyterian church, and his loss will be keenly felt by that society. His widow and one daughter, Gertrude, about four years old, survive him. The funeral was held at the late home on (208) Chemung street, Monday afternoon at four o'clock, and was attended by a large company of friends. Rev. P. R. Ross conducted the sad service, assisted by Rev. J. L. Taylor, of Wyoming, Ohio, a former pastor, and Rev. H. D. Jenkins, of Sioux City, Iowa, a friend of the boyhood days of the deceased. The remains were taken to Scotchtown, about 5 miles from Middletown, for burial. Rev. P. R. Ross accompanied them, and officiated at the last sad rites at the grave. (In June of 1898, his remains, after resting in a vault in Phillipsburg cemetery, were brought back to Waverly in Glenwood Cemetery for burial.)

February 5, 1915 Waverly Free Press And Tioga County Record - KNAPP-SLAUGHTER WEDDING IS BRILLIANT AFFAIR
The prettiest and most elaborate wedding of the season occurred on Tuesday evening, when Miss Gertrude Slaughter was united in marriage to George Brinker Knapp at the Chemung street house (208 Chemung street Waverly, NY) of the bride. The prominence of the families and the popularity of both the young people made the occasion a notable one. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. Parke Richards, pastor of the Presbyterian church.
The bride was given in marriage by F. A. Sawyer. She was exquisitely gowned in white satin made with court train, trimmed with hand-run Chantilly lace seeded with pearls. Her tulle veil was fastened with a band of pearls and orange blossoms, and she carried a shower bouquet of roses, lilies of the valley and smilax. Her ornaments were a diamond LaValliere, the gift of the groom, and a sunburst of diamonds, a family heirloom. She was attended by her maid of honor, Miss Florence Mapes of Goshen, who wore pink messaline and carried white roses. Her bridesmaids, Miss Dorothy Atwater, Miss Frances Knapp, Miss Hazel Johnson, and Miss Katherine Smith of Middletown, N. Y., were charmingly gowned in pale blue silk, with short tulle veils. They carried pink roses. Joseph W. Knapp, 3rd, acted as ring bearer, and the ribbon bearers were Miss Gertrude Slaughter Smith of Middletown and Miss Helen Knapp. Joseph W. Knapp, Jr., officiated as best man. The ushers were Harry W. Knapp, Harold Watrous, Philip Finch.
The house was beautifully decorated with cut flowers and greenery, roses predominating. The ceremony was performed in the library, before a bank of white roses and smilax. The drawing room was decorated with Jacqueminot roses, while the dining room was a symphony in pink, white, and green. The bride's table was decorated in pink and white roses and pink favors, while Japanese lilies and carnations were used about the room with charming effect. Coleman's orchestra of Ithaca played throughout the evening, and Alberger of Ithaca served the four course wedding breakfast.
The bride's gift to her maid of honor was a pearl and sapphire brooch, and to her bridesmaids strings of pearls. To the little ribbon bearers she gave forget-me-not pins and to the ring bearer a signet ring. Her gift to the groom was a watch. The groom's gifts to his best man and ushers were gold cuff links.
The ceremony was performed in the presence of about two hundred guests. Among those from outside Waverly were Mrs. David Munson of Rochester; Mrs. Eugene Smith, Harry and Eugene Smith, Miss Katherine Smith, and Miss Gertrude Smith of Middletown; Miss Edna Slaughter of Middletown, Mrs. James Haggerty and Miss Florence Mapes of Goshen, Miss Edna Day of Canandaigua, Mr. and Mrs. George Dayton of Towanda, Miss Marion Freestone of Tacoma, Washington; Miss Mary Millard of Elmira, Dr. and Mrs. Knapp and the Misses Knapp of Newark Valley.

October 10, 1927 Waverly: George B. Knapp Killed By Charge from Shotgun. Prominent Waverly Man Dies Instantly When Gun Is Accidentally Discharged At Home Here. George Brinker Knapp, accidentally shot himself at 5:30 Saturday afternoon in his bedroom at his home, 208 Chemung street. Mr. Knapp has been ill for several weeks and had only recently returned from Glen Springs Sanitarium, Watkins Glen where he had been receiving treatments. He was much improved in health, however, and was making plans to start on a brief squirrel hunting trip with friends this week. Mr. Knapp had just taken a bath and returned to his room to dress. Mrs. Knapp, his wife, was on the first floor of the home and was making preparations to take Mr. Knapp for a short automobile ride before dinner. Hearing a noise as if someone had fallen, Mrs. Knapp hastened to her husband's room and found him lying upon his back on the floor with a large wardrobe trunk, which stood in the room, over turned and lying partially on Mr. Knapp. A shotgun, which had been lying across the top of the trunk and which Mr. Knapp had been cleaning in readiness for the hunting trip, had been fired, probably as the trunk had fallen and the charge had entered the body of her husband, passing through his chest. Dr. F. H. Spencer, the family physician, was summoned and found that life was extinct. He called Coroner J. T. Tucker who made an examination and decided that death was accidental. The decedent was born in Waverly in November, 1885, and had resided in this village all his life. He was engaged for a short time in the dry goods business with his father but had retired from active business life some years ago. Mr. Knapp, while not taking an active part in the civic life of the village on account of ill-health, was one of the best known citizens of this community. He was a member of the First Presbyterian church of Waverly; a member of Tioga Hose company and a charter member of the Shepard Hills Country club. In the latter organization, Mr. Knapp always had taken a very active part. Being an ardent golf enthusiast, he had played in most of the tournaments of the past few years and for a time was chairman of the tournament committee and also of the greens committee. He was a director of the Citizen's National Bank. He is survived by his widow, Mrs. Gertrude Slaughter Knapp; one daughter, Charlotte at home; his mother, Mrs. Joseph W. Knapp Sr., who resided with her son, and three brothers, Harry and Joseph of Waverly and Ralph, at present in Warsaw, Poland. Funeral services will be held at the late home Tuesday at 2:30 and will be private. Rev. Albert O. Caldwell, pastor of the Presbyterian church, will officiate and interment will be in Glenwood cemetery.
