Description

While demolishing the old Kradwell building (which either contained part of the original farm house, or had was located very near to the location of the original farmhouse), the workers found a cistern that they surmised belonged to the original farmhouse. No supporting archaeological, or historical, documentation exists that positively verifies that this cistern actually belonged to the original farmhouse. But the location of the find in relation to where the farmhouse once stood makes this connection very positive in nature.
