Springhouse door


To get water from the spring below the Mallory Springhouse, people would enter through this door and fill their buckets with water from the spring. Today, the planks are still there, but the door and pathway to it are both overgrown.

As a point of reference, the door is on the east side of the springhouse. Yesterday's photo shows the north and west sides of the building.

Nice. I like to see spring houses in action. Up here, now and then, you can see one in use to keep milk cool which is what they were used for until after the war.

Nice post.
