Found This Interesting Decorative Spigot Thing...And Some Cool Foundation Site Pics!!
Any ideas what this object is? Seems to be some sort of spigot, but I'm not really sure. The opening on the bottom is threaded.
I came across these 2 foundations in the woods....one was a creamery. I found a dumping area for the house and came across this cool inkwell! Waterman's Ink...
Enjoy the pics - these sites (the creamery in particular) had some of the most intact walls I've ever seen. But there is masonry, suggesting they are more mid/late 1800s than early...
Thanks for looking!

Don't know what it is but it's cool as grits on a stick..... Ink well is nice too.

That spigot is really neat. Perhaps a valve from an old gas light fixture? Just a thought.

Ever wonder where your thoughts come from?

I like the ink well as well as the gas valve, but I find the foundation more interesting. Sorry. I just get into these old home sites and the imagination of the people who constructed them. Thanks for sharing all the photos.

Did you scan the two round rocks with your MD? Could be a hidden cache.

I didn't actually, and now you are making me want to!
