As a Jurassic Park fan and budding young buccaneer, this intrigued me. Did this door lead to some kind of lost world? Was it hiding a fabulous secret?
I spent three years trying to find out, but the door was always shut fast and locked with a big brass padlock. My schemes to invade, including digging under it from beneath the front porch, were failures.
Finally, not long before we moved, I found the door unlocked and ajar. Flush with success, I crept inside…the well house. A cramped, stuffy little room containing only the well pump, spider webs, and a smaller door to the space under the house.
