Brian moved your Photo to front. Just a preference, always prefer photo, then original art then published.

George;

I see a structure called Ebenezer Spring at

41.223241, -79.401944

It is basically a stone wall with a water spout in the ornate center section.

Attached is a screenshot. I don't see another similar structure in the area.

Don,we may have our wires crossed here.When heading out of Clarion on 322 before you cross the river take the first left onto old 322 to the end of that road.If you swing the satellite to the left you can see what looks like a metal door surrounded by stone.That's what i'm talking about.Doesn't look like a spring to me.

Hey George;

That stone structure at the end of old 322 is a spring. There's a photo of it (as well as a photo of the old iron bridge) on this page:

I have a question.If you go on street view to the end of old U.S. 322 is that an oven i see in the hillside surrounded by stone?I could be right,i could be wrong.If anyone knows please let me know because i know the area had a lot of kilns outside years ago.

Yet another good postcard find, Dana.

Keep up the good work.
