The Homestead became our home St. Patrick's Day weekend of 1990. After many years of managing residential income properties, we sold our rental house in Marysville & moved to the country! A fixer-upper - we spent almost 27-years building, planting & loving our home here.

It wasn't until the early 90's when my Grandfather passed, that the farm went to his brother & my Grandmother moved to town. Listed on the Iowa historic registry - now over 100-years old.
