Goodness, I hope it's not a Celeste type as I have already two of them and gave 2 away last year. I compared the leaves with my Celeste and they don't look the same. My Celeste has some 5 lobed ones and some spade shaped leaves. Maybe the cool weather we have been experiencing has something to do with it. The fruits look similar as they are both green with white dots.
I Googled the history of Celeste figs and this is what I found: "This fig is sometimes called the Celestial or Sugar Fig. It was first cultivated in 5000 BC in Western Asia and the Old World Mediterranean, making its way to Europe in the early 1500s, Mexico in 1560, and arriving in the Eastern United States in 1669." That would explain why it was at an old homestead.
