Across from the water trough/tank are the ruins of a homestead.
The slats are missing from the stairs that lead into the cellar, from the tongue and grove floor.
Rusted, sections of screen were laying under boards.
Six cord, woven wire mesh mattress with coils. (***In 1889, Zalmon Simmons Company introduced the first, spiral coil springs for woven wire mesh beds.)
In the cellar, was a small granite ware sauce pan without it;s handle and a wooden box. We could not make out the writing.
