completed stone wallThe newly completed traditional New England stone wall on the grounds of the Eric Sloane Museum.  The wall looks so beautiful with the Noah Blake cabin and the Kent iron furnace in the background.  Our thanks to all of the wonderful folks who came out during the year, signed up for a course on traditional dry laid stone masonry techniques, and rolled up their sleeves to create a beautiful and lasting tribute to the sometimes forgotten farmer/mason of New England.
