Barbara Shay wrote a background on this object: "The beanie was brought home by my mother the day of the farm being built. We lived (still live) on what is now Road 'K.' At that time there was no houses around us. We walked across the road about 200 to 300 feet and set on the small hill, over looking the Farm-in-a-Day being built. Since we might get in the way, we were not allowed to go over."
