Here is an interesting shot of the Rose farm as it looked ca. 1890. I happened to have a similar modern view I took from the Wheatfield Road on the bottom below. Obviously, the biggest change is the barn has been reduced to the stone foundation. The houses seen in the background were along the Emmitsburg Road at the time. Notice the tall skinny pine tree along Roses' lane at left center in both photos. I've previously wondered aloud if that could be a witness tree. A similar shaped tree can be seen in the background of one of Garnder's iconic Rose pasture series. Laying it out on a google map, it falls in line with this same tree in Rose lane. Just some of my idle speculation.
