This wall stands on the "Boot
Hill" farm of John Jacob Niles, balladeer and composer. It is believed
that Niles built this wall in the late 1930s or 1940s.
This section of wall tied into
another section that had been repaired making the total length of the restored
section about 30 feet. This is about a third or a fourth of the total
length of this wall.
Although the wall looks great
and will stand for generations, it is a little more ambitious than Niles had
intended. However, I think he would have been pleased.
