It is a shame that the current owner, a family member that bought the farm from his uncle, is not willing to restore this house the way it should be. The one thing in it's favor, it has never stood empty for any length of time. But the uncle took better care of this place from what I have been told. This nephew, is a tightwad, and there were some family disagreements and squabbles, and then he bought this place and I know part of it was to piss off some of the other family members, and he wanted the rent from the 2 houses on it. I wish I could win the lottery so I could offer him a " too good to turn down" offer, and do some things that need doing and utilize the land here the way it should be. He doesn't hardly fertilize it..... only what is the minimum, he doesn't make enough hay to feed his cattle through the winter but buys quite a bit, it is not cross fenced like it should be to rotational graze it like it should be..... you just hate to see only the minimum done to get by with. GRRRRRRThat's amazing to me that a house that old is still standing and habitable. I'm very impressed.
