Someone hand dug this well and stone lined the sides. Picture doesn't do it justice. I moved the cover back just a little to get a peak in. It is probably 6ft across. Water level is at 17ft down and rushing in. I ran my 30ft tape down it today and didn't hit bottom. I'm guessing this was done some time in the mid 1800s? If anyone can dispute the timeline I would love to hear. My understanding is they would bail water as they dug until the water came in fast enough that they couldn't bail it. Anyone have any pics of theirs?
