We're going to need a locksmith!

Hi folks!
As Jim mentioned on Monday we recovered a large padlock from our excavations around Burch House. It is possible that this is the padlock for the Port Tobacco jail, as Washington Burch was the jailer and may have ended up with it after the jail closed.

This is the sort of interesting item all of us like to pull out of the screen at Port Tobacco! It would be great if we could conserve it.

Have a great weekend!
