    Re: Brick What????

    If you can get to the local library, they should have the towns newpapers on microfilm. I would research the newspapers for that time period (yes, it is time consuming)...but you may find something on the recreation area, may even have photos. Ask the library if they have old photos somewhere of the rec park or if they know where in town, maybe the historical society. If you can find photos with that object in it, it would answer your questions. Not sure if the court house would hold any photos of the rec park, so try the historical society and/or library first.

    Good luck!!!!

    To me it just doesn't look broken or destroyed - simply abandoned. Uniform height of the walls and lack of debris around it tell me that it was probably NOT any taller. I say "wishing pond" or Koi pond.

    Would anyone believe a cow bath, In early 1900s fairs quite often like todays fairs had livestock showing as a main attraction. But getting bessy down the road to the fair was a much different affair than it is today, and keeping her looking good as well as odor free was important not just for looks but to keep fly control down at the event.

    Maybe it had a wooden wishing well on it. Sounds like a nice gig that "wishing" well business, maybe I could build one in my front yard. Everyone can stop by and toss in their best finds and make a wish!

    New information..................
    This was fairly close to what once was a small lake, not more than 300-400 feet away, and had an old broken concrete park bench not more than 20 feet from it also.
