Talking about homesteading

Jonita Sommers (sitting, with green coat) explains interesting details about local homesteading and tie hacking history. Jonita's family has been on this ranch for over 100 years. The old 2-story log homestead house was used until the 1970s. For the last years it served as a bunkhouse for the hay crew. The family has donated an acre of land and many of the old ranch buildings to be a part of the homestead living history site. It will be a place where people can touch things, learn how they worked, and do fun experiments to learn how things were like for the people who lived during the homestead time period.
