Inscription. In Roosevelt’s day, fields of timothy and corn ran downhill from here to an early 19th-century hay barn – the scene of childhood games. You could look left across a quarter mile of pasture to the old apple orchard and the woods. The crack of rifle might come from a ravine below the pasture – the President practicing his aim.
