Inscription. This early nineteenth-century well served the Gemeinhaus and its various outbuildings. When the archaeologists reopened the well in the 1960s, an original wooden pump stock was recovered and preserved.

"During these days a well has been dug in the yard of the Gemeinhaus. At about twenty geet it had a stand of six feet of water."
