This farm is on County Road OO Richland Center, Wi It was in the Sigrist family for 1 day short of 100 years! Built by Grant and Lester Sigrist & families, Last owned by Robert Sigrist (Son of Lester & Nora)Has our 1971 Chevy Impala at the top of driveway, & our 1967 Shell Lake tri-hull fiberglass boat by tree in the front yard! Dad poured the concrete (by himself) driveway in 1966 using a 1/3 yard electric cement mixer doing the driveway in 6' x12' sections! He brought the farm when he returned from service in the Air Force and sold the cattle as soon as he paid his Dad off! He then continued working for Kramer Brothers Construction from Plain Wi. In 2015 we sold the farm to Junction View Farms (Keller & Stibbe)a mile toward Richland Center from our farm on County Road OO. The Concrete garage near the road was gone along with the milk house and corn crib when we sold the farm!

Many, Many wonderful memories at the home. One not so wonderful was when Nancy and I were playing around farm equipment and Nancy was attached by hornets. Boy did we run.
