"Higley Hill Farm," (now Windekind) in 1935. The photo to the left was taken in the middle of what is now the lawn below the house. The gent with the two horses is Harley George. Time was running out for the old farm; soils were thin and rocky after a century of hard farming. Today a prime stand of 70' and 80' Norwegian Spruce stands on the distant hillside. To the right of the horses is the "Studio".
The photo, left, shows the George family on the front stoop for the farmhouse. Ted George, who visits Windekind, is the boy in the center.
We sometimes ponder what has been lost and gained. We are happy to find the marks of past generations--fences, walls and wagon parts. Today the old house lives on with fresh purpose for new generations.
