Some may have viewed my previous post at
where I mentioned a stone mason of long ago.
A moraine is any glacially formed accumulation of unconsolidated glacial debris ( soil and rock) that occurs in currently glaciated and formerly glaciated regions ...
We are located in the area of a 'moraine' created at the end of the ice age. The sand stone for these homes were quarried on and near the farm of the stone mason.
Here are beautiful examples of this craftsman's work.
They are the homes of three of his children
built around the late 1930s.
Could the pattern of the stone be called mosaic?
This crafted stone sidewalk and carved stone mailbox post have remained in place at the stone mason's homestead
for many, many years.
P.S. As a child, I walked past this home on my way to our one room school house.
(yes, I'm that old : )
