Observations: The area inside the stone wall was almost impossible to evaluate because of the briars, weeds, trees and ground hog
holes but seems to have 4 rows of 4 abreast. It was also impossible to check outside 3 sides of the site. The farm lane crosses in front
of the wall and it was possible to evaluate the lane area and the meadow east of the lane. In this area there were 7 rows of 9 abreast,
lying north to south. A very large rock is in the center of the site inside the unmortared wall. The east side of the wall and the gate
area need repairs. The wall is about 2 1/2' high and 2' thick.
