I grew up in eastern Ohio on a small farm. My parents bought the farm when they married. It was 40 acres for $15000. What a deal! This is the house when I was a young girl.
This is a photo after my dad added a room - my high school days.
My brother and his wife purchased the farm about 30 years ago when my parents built a new house on my great grandparents land. It made me so glad that my brother bought our farm and kept it in the family. I knew I wasn't going to be living here. But I can show my children and we can still visit when we come back.
This is the house now. My brother has really fixed it up and made it look nice.
4 years ago (just before we came to visit in 2006) part of the barn fell in.
