1. Wooden Water Pipe Marker
Inscription.  
This nearly 22-foot-long water pipe was excavated from the Casper Koiner farm in Crimora, Augusta County. It was part of a system that carried water to the 155-acre farm which included distilleries, a tannery, and a grist mill. Due to its relative affordability and availability, wood has been used to make pipes and pumps to supply water for century.

[Captions:]
The pipe was made by drilling a hole through the center of the log using a long handled auger.

The pipes would be tapered at one end so they could fit together with another pipe.
