Earlier they got water from a spring near the road (or when the well got too low!). #9 The Olsons lived in the house until 1985. Original porch enclosed and they loved living in that room as much as they could. #10 The house is jacked up and ready to move to what is now 8 Sprague Road. They pulled it through the field and now the back faces the road.
