    Need some help here.

    I found this last year at one of my most productive colonial cellar holes. What is it? I've seen it posted before on here but I have no clue what it is or what its purpose was for. Name:  IMG_5286 (2).jpg

    Thanks for the Id Drew! Don't know what it was doing out in the middle of what once was a colonial FarmField (cellar was a short walk away) but I'll take it nevertheless. Thanks!
