This site does not appear on the 1854 or 1869 maps and presumably was gone before 1854.  It is deep in the woods off East St.  We do not know when it was built or by who or when it ceased to exist.  This home is small at approximately 12' x 18' or about 216 sq. ft.  There is an additional space of approximately 12' x 12' or 144 sq. ft. without a cellar on the west side of the house.  Whether it was additional living space or some form of outbuilding is not known, nor is whether there was a second level to the house. 

Below are 3 more photos of the cellar hole followed by 2 photos of what was perhaps a stock pen that approximately 290' to the south of the house and at a somewhat higher elevation, the terrain dropping between the two and there being a small stream running between the house and this structure.  To the immediate west of this structure is a large flat area, noticeably flat for the area.  The structure itself is an irregularly shaped space comprised of a substantial stone wall on three sides with the open wall being about 36' long.  The overall size is roughly 2,200 sq. ft.  The size of the open wall calls into question what this space might have actually been used for.  Artifacts indicative of an actual structure have not been found here to date. 

These photos are from 2019 courtesy of Phil Mandolare.
