A Gate With No Purpose

An old gate in the middle of a field but it doesn't secure anything.

If you walk around St. James Farm Forest Preserve in Warrenville, IL, you might find a gate. That’s not a huge surprise on a farm since farms usually have lots of gates.

What is surprising is that this gate is just in the middle of a field, not really stopping anyone from getting to the other side.
