    This is called 'kitchen rock'.
    Apparently it was used by the Miwok Indians (native Americans) in a mortar/ pestle type application to grind corn and other things......
    Very cool.

    Great pics!! I love old buildings!! I could spend days and days poking thru old barns, abandoned houses and such, especially around the area where my folks live...unfortunately, I would end up getting shot by some old farmer :lol3

    It looks like a scalding kettle. After a hog was butchered, it was dipped in hot water to loosen the hair, so that it could be scraped off. :nod You don't want hair on your ham or bacon, do you? :poser

    this pic makes me think of Bugs Bunny. Wabbit (peach) stew??? some carrots, a little celery, some potatoes, and some Tabasco & chili peppers no???

    great pics, and thanks for the entertainment. Its much needed as I sit here awaiting a foot of snow for tomorrow. Winter never bothered me.... until I started riding. Now I daydream of relocating somewhere just for the riding.

    Thank goodness I had no plans this weekend, and it is 5 degrees out. All 155 pages kept me entertained.

    I promise to try and keep up from now on, DP.:D

    Loved every page of it!

    FYI It's probably called the Salt House because it's a Saltbox house. The roof line resembles a salt baox from the period when these houses were originally built.

    Exactly. The porch and porch roof were not part of the original structure.
