Nelson Meadows

The 50-foot by 30-foot grassy meadow area contains old farm equipment and a ramp structure. In 1874 the land was homesteaded by the Shankee family. The land had a berm used for potatoes, lettuce, and cattle grazing. In 1962 there was a peat moss mining operation located there. Remnants of the operation are a 20-foot by 12-foot by 11-foot 3-inch high ramp structure, a 3-foot 3-inch long metal scooper and a 4-foot 10-inch metal pulley.
