The drive into Hill-Stead (featured yesterday) is lined with stone walls.
Stone walls are an iconic feature of the New England countryside. This part of the country is very rocky. Before farmers could hope to tease crops from the land, they first had to do the back-breaking work of removing the rocks. What did they do with all of those rocks? Why, they built walls.
Tomorrow you will see a different kind of stone wall.
