Horse Trough

This horse watering trough was built to last, in 1893, and still stands --- just down the street from Framingham State College, at the begining of Salem End Road.   Unfortunately, it probably only served its pupose for two or three decades, as automobiles replaced horse drawn transportation.

Note: Salem End Road was so named as it served as a refuge for residents of Salem, Massachusetts after they were accused of witchcraft in the famous Salem Witch Trials of the late 1600's.
