Where do I look for abandoned wells?

Abandoned wells may be found in old pump houses, storage sheds, old detached garages, basements, under porch steps, near cisterns and windmills, or in small building structures. Hand dug wells can often be found in lowland areas near surface water. For more information on abandoned wells, visit our Maintaining Your Well page, and select the Abandoned Wells tab.
