I think the Farm House / Barn was built in the mid 1800s

Access to basement/ground level of barn is from the right side facing the barn,
floor is all dirt.
There is a "fire water" pond behind the rear of the barn that is now over grown with weeds. As A child in the 1960 I
used to walk there and watch the frogs and tad poles swim around in it. I suppose it could be cleared out if needed for
a pond.

I have also done some much needed repairs in the last 3 years.
