The farm was originally known as the Hanson Farm.  The barn was built in 1910 by Mr. Hanson for hay storage and his team of draft horses.  It is unique because it is set into the hillside so that access is available to off load hay on the upper level and feed the animals at the lower level.

The farm has been in the Wright family since 1982. They have taken great care in maintaining the barn and Victorian era home.

The quilt block was chosen from David’s Granny’s quilts.  Her name was Bessie Lunger.  She made quilts for all of her children, grandchildren and even grandchildren up to her death.  David and Louise chose this quilt block to honor her memory.
