The old Maxwell home in 1895

aunt minerva collection
you can see a team of horses hitched to a wagon in foreground,a good sized house, an outbuilding, fences, a woman in fenced in area to the left of picture, a woman in dark clothes right by fence in center front, and a woman to her right, on far right there appears to be a man. The house has 2 front doors.
I really wish I knew who these people were! I would guess woman on left to be Harriet Harrison Maxwell, based off the one picture I have seen of her. there is a second wagon by the open shed. (I'm using a magnifying glass, folks!) there are several downed limbs...maybe this was taken after a storm?
