    The springhouse foundations are constructed of local quartz, carefully fit together with a minimum of mortar. The overall 10-foot by 30-foot outline of the springhouse was roughly rectangular, but the section of the foundation farthest away from the spring, visible at the right in the picture below, is rounded and quite deep, and may have been used as an icehouse. The spring itself is at the far left in this picture, near the barely-visible pink surveying flag.

    Here's a more detailed view of the circular section of the foundation:
