FULL DISCLOSURE: The McAdam homestead is located on what once was the Hayfield slave plantation. Back in 1841, when young Abe Lincoln visited his friend Joshua Speed, over at Farmington plantation, David Ward’s Hayfield would have been the Speed’s “next-door” neighbor. It is more than likely that Abe and Josh, while riding around the neighborhood that summer, would have stopped at the Hayfield springhouse for a cool drink of water. Our house was built on top of that old springhouse, and, while we will probably not be featured in the C-SPAN series, that pretty much explains why we get so much water in our basement.
