The Farmhouse

The Farm House was built by the Nissley Family in the early 1950s. where they raised nine of their fourteen children. They built and operated a dairy until 1969 when they retired and sold the property to my husband and I. The property is now a tree farm, but we wanted to preserve the house and its history and to share the peace and tranquility with those travelers who might need a retreat or a "home away from home". Deer and other wildlife often come by for a visit!
