c. 1904

Completed in 1904, this is one of only three remaining sections of the original woven wire fence at the Soldiers' Home.

During the latter half of the nineteenth century woven wire and barbed wire began to replace wooden rail fences.

Woven wire fencing once enclosed the entire 102 acres of the Soldiers' Home site, with interior fences enclosing a four acre garden area and at least on of the two cemeteries.
