Interior views of the main room (center) and a walkway from one room to another.  The
collapse of most of the roof has taken a toll on the deterioration of the entire building.

A view from the what we believe was the West side of the original homestead with
a hand pump (handle missing) over the water well in the foreground.

We lost a sense of direction while walking around taking pictures, and on a return trip sometime
(hopefully when the sun is shining), we will check which way the compass is pointing, but this
is believed to have been the East side of the building.  The last two photographs show that the
original windows were blocked and narrowed to what appears to be slots large enough to point
a rifle through.  Two of these slots were only on this side of the building.
