Well and Pumphouse

The well originally stood without a structure around it just south of the barn and wooden granary. The Firestien boys pumped water into buckets by hand. It provided water for the milk cows and was pumped into a stock tank for the cattle in the north corral area. In the mid to late 1940s, the pump house was added.
