Oatlands Archeology Update for October 13

Interesting stuff today…an intersecting wall that might be the south exterior wall of an original barn structure, and a three-foot deep footing for a brick pier in a pole barn.  It will take more research and probably more digs to know what all this means, but we’re very excited to be making progress!
