While at the ranch we went back in time, touring the old buildings and reading about the history of the ranch. As it turns out, one of the caretakers of the property (1864 – 1869) has ties to residents of our little community. It’s a small world…

From its metal wheels to the hand crank, how time has changed the tools of agriculture:
