We discovered this stone house on our recent trip. In Michigan, there are a lot of rocks in the ground. In order to farm the field, the farmer has to remove the rocks. Because of the freeze and thaw cycles in Michigan (which forces the rocks to the surface), the rocks have to be removed EVERY spring prior to working the fields. They are often piled up in fence rows, in ditches (to prevent erosion) or used for building. This is a genuine stone house, built many years ago. The ultimate in recycling!!! The interesting things about this farm was that they also had a couple of out-buildings and other structures built in the same style. It was a very well maintained farmstead - which showed the pride of it's current occupants.
