The family farm

DSC_0368
This gate is to a house that stands on a farm that has seen 6 generations
The original homesteaders and many of their 11 children lie beneath the sod on a hill not far away
Those that wait for a chance to reunite with them still gather together here
The congestion of vehicles parked in back is a sign they were anxious to get inside to see familiar faces.
They share meals, stories, good times and bad while sitting on the porch or around a table inside
Sometimes they meet in the wooded areas for holidays and picnics
Then they drive back to their own homes and while remembering the families that began there
They look forward to the next event that binds them together.

  1. I love houses with history. I drive by the house where my Great nana, nana and mom all grew up every once in a while and wish I could buy it.

  2. Beautiful story and pictures. It's always good to keep traditions and history alive. When I lived in Hew Hampshire, I used to drive by a farm house that my grandfather owned, and I miss seeing it. Thanks for sharing this story!
