Chadbourne site plaster wall in parlor The white line marks the remains of the plaster outer wall of the parlor. The cellar runs to its right, and to the left is light sandy subsoil, outside the cellar.
Chadbourne sill trench The bottom of the sill trench for the western end of Structure 1 is filled with rocks, presumably to provide some support for the sill. Here it is viewed from the north.
Chadbourne dig crew 2004 A majority of the volunteers for the 2004 season stand behind the unexcavated sill trench for the western end of Structure 1 (it is the dark line that runs diagonally across the excavation unit). While it is viewed from the north in the photo above, here it is viewed from the south.
Chadbourne corner of cellar The cornerpost for the northeast corner of the cellar of Structure 1 is just above the arrow in this picture. The large black stain above is the remains of the wooden cellar wall, which was held in place by the corner post.
Chadbourne front wall The substantial stone front wall of the cellar of Structure 1.
Structure 2 under excavation The wood-lined cellar of Structure 2, under excavation.
