Basement view from the Korns family farmhouse

These 2008 photos show views in the basement of the uninhabited 19th century Southampton Township, Somerset County family farmhouse that belonged to Daniel Korns, Jr., then to John Wilson Korns, then to Allen Korns. The beams supporting the first story floor are logs that have been flattened on top. The walls are formed from rock, which is plentiful on the farm. One of the beams has a large hook for tasks such as hanging a lantern, or hanging an animal carcass for butchering.
