Recollections:

DBF (09 Apr 2012): "My great grandparents home Darius and Marie (Hansen)Jensen. Darius came from Denmark. Harry (Uncle Eddie) Darius son, then his son Melvin owned it. Barns, dance halls, once upon a time, successful apple orchard. I believe there were 9 orchards at one time, am I right? I am also thinking that was a stage coach stop, horse change? The kitchen had 9 doors."

Provenance

Photo #54 in the 1941 Herbert Hiers photo album.
