Being a New Englander, I understand that we never throw out something that might be old but is still useful.
This said, when I am old, I hope my grandsons don't throw me out!
I'd like to imagine that this stone (near the road side of the church) might have been here or nearby when the first meeting house was built. I don't know that for a fact but it is a nice way to think about it.
Did my ancestors walk on this stone? Did small children sit on it to rest while walking to and from school?
Well, after all, this is a blog about stone!
