Water trough from the Korns family farmhouse

These 2008 photos show the water trough 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 trough is located on the north wall of the basement, toward the eastern end of the house. In my lifetime, the trough was used to cool food, such as watermellons. My aunt Dolores told me that the flat rocks were used for placing over crocks--I believe she said to hold the lids on.
