This is one of the oldest homesteads in the Mohawk Valley, New York. It is an example of a fortified home (walls were 2 ft thick, .6 meter, stone) and trading post, built by Johannes Klock in 1750. It was used in the French and Indian War, and the American revolution. To the immediate right of the house is a small stream, which has a small part diverted to run through the basement so they would always have fresh water. If under attack (which it was several times), windows were shuttered and it became impenetrable. If you look closely, you can see several "loopholes," which were holes rifles could be stuck out to fire - the most obvious one is to the left of the door. (44 days ago)

This farm still remains in the family after many generations. The picture was taken from the "family cemetary" looking over the entire acreage and farm. Cybershotx15 camera image. (5 years and 878 days ago)

Lovely, where is it?

Thank you! This is in Buckland, Massachusetts. I did a series of framed prints for my mom of the barn as she used to play in it when she was a child. It was my great grandparents home...now a distant relative owns it.

The saturation levels seem just a little high.

EDIT: Good choice to convert to grayscale. I think this much better. GL!
