My Mom's family originally came from Germany and homesteaded this property in 1850. She was raised on this farm, married and raised 7 children( I was #4) on this same farm. After my father died in 1975, she was not able to keep the farm and it was sold in 1980. I was fortunate enough to be able to buy most of it back in 2001. With our kids grown and off to college, my wife and I moved back in 2008, we tore down the original farm house and rebuilt it in the same image. I've since retired in 2011. This particular property is across the street from the "Homestead" and was built 30 yr's ago. My wife and I were able to acquire this home in February of 2012 and we have spent the last 5 months, working full time renovating and decorating. We are now very happy and pleased to share this home and this area with our guests. Even though I moved off to college in 1974 and lived all around the US I always knew I wanted to return. The beauty, pace and quality of life is hard to match. I recommend you try it out !! I think you would agree !!
