Our House and Pole Barn

This is our humble house. It is a typical farmhouse in the area. Built in the mid 1800's (~1847-1852). We have 3-bedrooms upstairs with a generous landing area. It has aluminum siding and a roof that the Stone's put on in 2000.

This is our "pole sheed". Otherwise known as equipment/hay storageand sheep winter quarters. The chicken shed is to the left of the building. You can also see our "Kitchen Art" near the house. I'll talk more about that later. There is a hop plant growing at the base.

This farm was a hop farm in its earliest days. There were also apple trees. I saw them in the 1938 air photos at the District office.
