log pipe or tube

A sign on this log reads: "While digging a drainage ditch, John Goldsbury unearthed some of the log piping which his grandfather, Barnard Fisher, had made to carry water from a spring across the street from the upper part of the cemetery, down the hill and across [what is now] Rt 78 to the Fay Tavern or "Beehive" which Barnard owned. One of these logs is in the basement of the Historical Society building."
