Covered Well

Located between the Dentist’s Office and the Mayer Home is a Covered Well, such as could have been used by an individual family or shared by a group of families. Its weather-beaten siding and rustic roof protects the well from the weather. A wooden bucket hangs from a rope on a pulley, this was used to get the water from the well. A trough from the top of the well leads to the outside of the building, which could have been used to fill a tank with water for the family’s domestic animals.
