More Grading Reveals Date on Barn

Jeff spent most of this afternoon grading the front of the barn – not just in front where we had the cement truck – but also alongside the road to keep the water from running into our yard.  Lars and Tina got to shovel away some of the high spots …  It looks really good already, once winter is over we’ll use the disc, then rake it and plant grass again.

As we were shoveling some of the ground away from the front corner of the barn, we found the date and someones initials on one of the foundation stones:  1858!
