There were several rock fences or walls along the way. I was told they were built by the Amish. One fence followed the road for 2 miles before it turned away down a side road. These walls displayed beautifully the idea of living off the land and using available God-given resources to make it happen.

I told you wrong Jim. It was the Shaker community that built those limestone fences around that area.
Those have been mortared in by later owners to keep down repairs. It's fairly common to see that.
Originally they were all dry fit. You still see some that haven't been altered. It is some amazing work.
Here in KY you're required to be the holder of a master stone mason license to do repairs on the original limestone fences.

Betty, "Lovely" Joanne and I would have been honored to visit you, but with Henry recovering and all your kin there, you were very busy. We got to visit a lot at Caseman's show and got very special hugs from you. I think we all done pretty good :!: :D
