Seats looking over Kibbe's Cellar Hole in Concord
Thoreau made a big deal about the Kibbes being dull earth grubbers. But if you locate the Kibbe cellar hole in Estabrook Woods in Concord you may notice it is within a rock pile site. This leads to the puzzle of when it became a rock pile site - during or after the Kibbes lived here? For example, these seats appear to have been built after the property was abandoned because they are made with rocks from the adjacent stone wall. I wonder if they were built after Thoreau visited the place?
