Thanks a million Bruce. This old place is one of many around here. I would love to hear the stories behind them.

Don Wright replied:

Me again Bruce- I didn't think of it when I first thanked you, but your mention of the red on the steel post made me realize that I hadn't commented on the post in the lower left. We are in an area known as Post Rock Country, because of thousands of stone posts like this one. In the early days, there were precious few trees around here to make posts from, let alone houses. There was (is) and abundance of limestone rock though. The settlers knew a good thing when they saw it, an carved posts as well as blocks for houses from the limestone. An engineer neighbor told us that these posts weigh in the neighborhood of 100# per cubic foot. Most all of the thousands of these have been in use upwards of 150 years.
