This is the farm that my Grandparents bought in 1942, this photo was taken around 1953/54.
Highlighted in the second photo on the far left is the original homesteaders house.
Built from logs it measured apx. 12' x 14', the man that built it, took in his sister & her child born out of wedlock.
Highlighted on the right side of photo 2 is the house that was built to replace it. Built in 1898 it measures 14' x 20' , 1 & 1/2 stories.
The other part was added on in the twenties, around the same time that the large barn was built.
My wife & I moved here in 1982, & raised our four children here on the farm, although we needed more room so I built an addition on the right side in 1985.
