Structure 1 viewed from just behind the lean-to, looking toward the main hearth.
|Conjectural room division of Structure 1, viewe from behind the lean-to, looking toward the main hearth.|
|The stone footing and burned sill of the lean-to.|
|Closeup of the Chadbourne hearth, viewed from the north. The lean-to hearth is in the foreground, with bee hive oven to the left.|
|The hearth, viewed from the west, with the cellar stairwell in the foreground, in the lower righthand corner of the picture.|
|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.|
|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.|
|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.|
|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.|
|The substantial stone front wall of the cellar of Structure 1.|
