On the new property, there are many fascinating historic structures. One of the most stunning and impressive is the old well built in the early 1800's just which is located East of the old kitchen building. The well has a bit of overgrowth around it, but is in wonderful condition. The well house needs to be repainted and re-roofed, but is structurally sound. It is difficult to take photos which really do it justice. The well goes down an impressive 50 or 75 feet and its walls are lined with brick. Digging must have been a formidable task to accomplish without modern tools and machines. We hope to eventually restore the old well to preserve it for the future as an impressive example of historic engineering.
