This cellar hole near the Deadman's Curve on Walker Mountain Rd is in an unlikely spot for farming which begs the question as to who lived there and for what purpose.  It was not on the 1854 or 1869 maps.  This home was presumably gone before those compilations but perhaps not given the 1847 coin found there (bottom photos).  Perhaps data will become available to shed light on who lived here and when.  Artifacts found at the site are indicative of early 1800's occupation.  See the Deadman's Curve entry in the Artifacts collection. 

This house was approximately 26' x 28' or about 728 sq. ft.  Whether it had a second floor is not known. Only a little more than half of the house had a cellar (approx. 26 ' x 16') suggesting the home was expanded adding 26' x 14' at some point.  The well for this home is approx. 52' to the west of the house at only a slight angle in a straight line from the back of the house.
