My grandparents bought a farm in 1950. Above is a scan of the original deed. Items included "chickens, about 65," "11 cows and 11 heifers," and "one tractor." Click on the scan for a larger version.Here is the farmhouse today, sad looking compared to what it was years ago. To the left is a giant lilac bush, to the right bridal veil, and a giant old (now dead) tree.
I had to take a photo of the wall paper leading to the upstairs. It's so old and kitschy it's nearly back in style again.
