Wold Cottage Meteorite

On this day in the year 1795 a meteorite, weighing 56 pounds fell near the Wold Cottage farm at around 3:00 P.M. “A monument was erected on the location of the stone's impact, by Major Topham, on whose property the stone had fallen.” Philip José Farmer’s Wod Newton Family is said to have started at this point in history.
