  • [Depicted in stylized scroll] The Record: 
    • 1) The old apple tree still stands, at the corner of Spring Road and Oakwood Drive.
    • 2) Across the road from the apple tree is a bit of the old well curb.
    • 3) Nearby, along Spring Road, is a spring, with a bit of cemented wall that was probably the base of the farmer's spring house. [illustration of a tree]
