More stuff from the old foundation
More digging at the old 1800's foundation and came up with some pretty cool finds, here is a pic from a few days ago.. 2 old knives, a part of a leg hold trap, and some unkown type of cap! Also found a large tool which looks to be once used on a farm "not in the pic", but I will sure to post a pic soon
a closer view of the knife with the missing blade!

It looks like an apple butter paddle.
We can’t judge the past by our attitudes of today. The past existed in its own context.
