A stone foundation is all that remains of a large wooden water tank that once stood on the low hilltop. Built around the year 1900, the tank used gravity to provide the property with water, which had been pumped up from the nearby Monongahela River. The water tank was just one of several improvements made to the property by Charles and Sarah Speer, owners from 1899-1910. In 1923, local handyman Alva Evans converted the water tank's stone foundation into a stone water cistern.
