At the height of preservation work on the Spangler summer kitchen, this previously unknown well was discovered. After further investigation and interviews with previous caretakers of the property, it was revealed that the well was used for many years in farming operations. According to oral histories, after long, dry summers, this well usually ran dry; thus, the family eventually removed the well pump and covered it over. Could the Spanglers and hospital patients have been faced with these same conditions in July 1863?
