Robin Jacobson had the winning answer to the question, "What will NOT be found under the 1894 King Farmhouse?" The contest was co-sponsored by the San Juan Historical Society and SanJuanJournal.com.
Jacobson wins a year's membership in the San Juan Historical Society and a set of historic postcards published by Arcadia Publishing Co.
The King Farmhouse, the signature building at the San Juan Historical Museum, was built in 1894. It was lifted Feb. 17 for a new foundation. Workers found an old bottle, an ax head, several horseshoes and a rusty nail.
We asked readers, "What will NOT be found under the 1894 King Farmhouse? 1. Jimmy Hoffa. 2. Rolf Neslund. 3. Fill in the blank."
