JACOB KIEM FARMSTEAD 1753

There are a number of old Farmsteads in and around my neck of the woods.  This is another one.  This one is registered on the Berks County National Historical Sites.

More of the Farm area.

The old Barn.  My car sits in the background.  If you haven’t noticed from my previous Posts, most of the old Barns all have the same shape and size.  Guess back then it was a common practice.

Here you can see just how common “Cold Cellars” used to be.  This one is under repair.

A few of the real old structures have a plaque, usually up on the junction of the eves.  There are some that don’t have anything.  Others have a plain cement plaque located on the side of the house somewhere that say’s when it was built.  The sign out front of the property say’s “Jacob Keim Farmstead 1753.”  This one say’s 1732.  Maybe this is when the house was built.  The rest came later on.

Thanks for stopping by.
