Day Twenty-nine: Hikin’ the Land

Mrs. Fredonia Hurse

Had a hiking day for class yesterday. This a photo from the graveyard we found on the 140 acre property that our campus owns.

Fredonia Hurse died in 1869, which according to the anthropology survey conducted this past spring is the latest date in the graveyard.
Most of the graves are unmarked stones set up in this area.

On the property we also found a homestead where the family used to live and lots of garbage (metal mostly) that we hope to haul off the property.

The work starts now, we must decide on an appropriate improvement and service project for this land. We also have to have said project completed by the beginning of December.
