A Closer Look

We came across an open mouth well at a local park recently. It was next to a spring house that was built in 1741. According to a spring house is "a small storehouse built over a spring  or part of a brook, for keeping such foods as meat and dairy products cool and fresh." The spring still flows and the water is clean and clear. Andy was curious about the well and attracted to the sound of flowing fresh water.
