1800s farmhouse floors

I pulled up the carpet and plywood and found these beauties. Only issue is there is no subfloor. It's a real pain to pull up the plywood cleanly and very time consuming. Being that there is no subfloor, on a limited budget, and limited time, am I better off covering this back up and putting some hardwood in? The boards are 2-3 inches thick. Any thoughts on what wood this might be? Located in Vermont.

Hello and welcome to the forum! If you tried to upload a pic, it didn't work. There's only a square there.

What is under the plywood? if it's planks - that is your subfloor. Pics would be nice.
