This picture brings back a lot of memories as I was raised here in the 1950's. Grandma and Grandpa built a new house behind the big house up the hill in 1949. We moved in 1951 to take over the farm. I did all the milking morning and night for years. In the picture I can still see the path worn up the hill to Grandma's where I took a gallon of milk each evening. Grandpa would bring the pail down each morning and put it in the milkhouse. I was so glad to get this picture since the big house burned in 1979. Things are so different now than they were then.
