Fayette County, Indiana, 1971. Copyright © State Aerial. Share

This picture brings back a lot of memories as I was raised here in the 1950's. Grandma and Grandpa built a new house behind the big house up the hill in 1949. We moved in 1951 to take over the farm. I did all the milking morning and night for years. In the picture I can still see the path worn up the hill to Grandma's where I took a gallon of milk each evening. Grandpa would bring the pail down each morning and put it in the milkhouse. I was so glad to get this picture since the big house burned in 1979. Things are so different now than they were then.
At that time all our close neighbors were relatives. Most are all passed on and the farms have been sold.
