According to additional information provided on 10/2011 by a member of the E.H. Davis Project Scholar Advisory Committee: It appears that there is a long ramada (brush covered exterior patio-like structure)behind the sweathouse. The ramada is typically a place for guests to gather and are often constructed for a gathering. The brush may be willow.
