2. The Fencing from The Findlay Foundry in front of the Cannonball House
The fencing is in front of the Holt-Findlay House.
The marker and fence stand in front of the Holt-Findlay House, built in 1853 for Judge Asa Holt and also known as the "Cannonball House." During the Civil War a cannonball hit the house, destroying a column and damaging the interior of the house. Some of that damage is still visible.
