This has been a working farm for a long time. My earliest memories of it only go back to the mid-60’s. We were able to save some of the old buildings–the main part of the “home house,” which dates back to the 1880’s, a couple of barns and a cabin. There are some other cabins and barns which we haven’t tried to restore, but which are still standing. And of course I can remember barns, houses and other outbuildings that are now gone.
But I often see evidence of life here that predates my earliest memories. This stone foundation in the woods is an example.
I don’t know what once stood there.
Maybe someday some future occupant of this place will see some remnant of our time here, and wonder what it was. I wonder what they’ll think of what we leave behind.
