Pit 42: Level 1

Completed on July 4, 2013 by David and Odess Brinkman. Even though the back yard has only yielded a few Granby brick fragments, we still wanted to cover a few more locations so we opened pit 42 in a "junky" part of the back yard. The results were not surprising. A railroad spike is a bit interesting since we know early 20th century railroad tracks must have moved through the area to transport granite and clay. Level 1 kept us busy with the mess that previous owners have left in the back yard.

Pit 42: Level 1 produced: Many modern day artifacts (1960-) and a few old brick fragments.
