The Carrier Pumphouses are three square (12′ x 12′), single-story, single room buildings constructed of brick. The roofs are flat with parapets. A wood door is located on the north side of the buildings, and a wood slat window is located on the south side. The pumphouses are spread one-half mile apart along the northern limit of the section line.
The three pumphouses constructed northeast of Carrier provided a desperately-needed water system for the small community of Carrier in addition to providing work for unemployed laborers in the Enid area during the Depression. The pumphouses are significant as examples of WPA water projects conducted throughout western Oklahoma. The buildings are unique within the community for their type and style.[1]
