Warehouses were large storage facilities, used by a community to store excess food stuffs, tools and other necessities. In many colonial societies, when large scale buildings like warehouses or barns needed to be constructed, parties would often be thrown in order to encourage community participation. Families would come with food and drink, feasting as they cut and raised the building. This practice can still be seen in select communities in North America, especially the Mennonite communities of Pennsylvania.
