Bad Condition of Foundation
Taken in October, 1996, during the demolition of the ell, this photo shows the bad condition of the ell`s original foundation. What we are looking at here is the northeast corner of the food preparation room. Most of the rotten flooring and floor beams have been removed, exposing one hundred and eighty years worth of makeshift foundation repair. This wall and its improvised foundation were subsequently demolished. The new wall was erected on a cement footing.
