3. Fence
East side of Seminary at Bostwick
Erected in 1835
          The extant fence once enclosed the house and grounds of John Bostwick, modestly described in its day as the most magnificent residence west of the Alleghenies.  Although the house burned in 1903, the fence stands as testimony to its excellence and skill of the iron-worker.
