The 150 year old tree in Midway (+/-)

Today a tree was cut down in Midway. This tree is on our rental property and once down we counted the rings and believe it to be right around 150 years old (+/-). This property belonged to Clydeus & Frances Nichols and as a little girl I would hang out with my Grandma and Grandpa Crews when they would go to visit or when my Grandma would get her hair done by Frances. I believe this might be one of the oldest, if not the oldest tree,  in Midway. Boone Electric had to remove this tree because of the power lines and once down it had a metal t-post grown inside... never seen that before! It's a shame that it had to go but the crew did a great job. They said it was the biggest tree they have taken down before. Just another neat piece of history here in Midway.
