A small silo, large chicken coop, concrete smokehouse, and another smaller barn still standing on the property suggest that a farming operation existed years ago. John and Melanie know that Mr. Turner — one of the farm’s early owners — was a schoolteacher. Cherry and walnut trees and a variety of wild berry bushes indicate that Mr. Turner may have enjoyed botany as a sideline job. An attic in the smaller barn that they found filled with old dolls, dinosaurs, and tricycles points to a past era where children tumbled about the farm and enjoyed a carefree life. Old car and tree stand remnants on the 40-acre property indicate that an active, refreshing lifestyle was enjoyed.
