*Saturday 6/16/18, 10am:  Field Trip - "The Little Farmhouse on PD and M"

Have you ever wondered what lies inside the little farm house with the seasonal wreath at the corner of Hwy M. and PD?  Here is your opportunity to find out!  This house has quietly sat on this intersection for over 140 years, becoming much more noticeable since the recent Highway M road construction removed most of the surrounding trees.  Join us for a field trip and tour of the house given by the current owner, who cares for the house and creates the wonderful wreaths which adorn the front door and provide a quick moment of country beauty for motorists passing by.

We will be meeting at the farmhouse at 10 a.m. for a short talk about the house and tour to follow.  Please note that Raymond Road no longer connects to PD or highway M as it used to - your GPS will be of no help.  The best way to access the house is via a brand new short paved road that attaches to PD a few hundred feet east of the PD and Highway M intersection.  Look for this little road on the North side of PD (see map below).  Map and image credit:  Google Maps.
