Inscription.  Presently sealed under the Old Salem Visitor Center driveway and parking lot are the archaeological remains of the 1789 Abraham Loesch House, examined in 1999. The house stood with its side to Walnut Street, here paved in brick. A well was dug at the rear of the house by 1749, and its archaeological location is marked in the sidewalk. Brother Loesch operated a fulling mill that stood just north of his house where there was a small mill pond.
