Here is another unusual stone row from the same area as a previous post (3/27/13). This segment extends between two large outcrops. Its unusual structure suggests it was built by natives.
Manitou-like stones stand against this wall. I often thought these were placed to hold the stones in place.
However, a small space is visible between the manitous and the other stones of the row. These would not have served to hold the stones back. One possibility is that a farmer utilized this stone row by placing these stones to hold fence posts.
This wall is uphill from an old farm road, in an area with building foundations. Here I have imagined it as a meadow fence with barbed wire.
Once I started looking, I noticed this detail in other old photos.
Of course, this modification would appear at walls used to keep in livestock.
