Property title received

Yesterday was a wonderful day.  We received the title work for the property.  After a copy is made, it will go directly into our safety deposit box.  We now have proof that we own 12.17 acres of the Historic Andrew Peterson Farmstead.  Peterson’s original property consisted of a total 160 acres. While 12.17 acres sounds very small in comparison, we feel very blessed.  It is also an amount of property we feel we can properly take care of.

Waiting has and probably will continue to be part of the restoration process of the farm.  We are waiting today to see if the Legacy grant written to finish the North Barn was accepted.  I have been told that the letters were sent yesterday.  But, nothing was received in the mail today. So we continue to wait…..

I am the Executive Director at the Carver County Historical Society. The truth of the matter is, that I am not sure I want to admit to how many years I have been in this business. Suffice it to say I have a Masters degree in Public and Nonprofit Administration and began my career in the 1980s. Oops, did I say that? I was reared on a farm, and began my career working at the MNHS site, the Oliver Kelley Farm. The love of the land and history run deep in my blood.
