View of the back (South side) of the main structure and the back yard in a photo from 2006.  The screen porch was a later addition.  Currently the lawn that swept down to the edge of the preserve, which was used by local groups for summer gatherings, has been taken over by a dense forest of invasive buckthorn and weed trees.

The third building on the site is the well house.  This charming little structure is a favorite - even when it disappears under winter snow piles.
