The barn was built in 1914 by JD Cooper. He eventually sold the farm to the Blodgett family who later sold it to the Oscar Heck family. In 1947 Elmer Schultz bought the farm and 60 years later it's still the Schultz Farm. Elmer milked cows in the barn for close to 50 years while he and his wife Leanna raised 7 children. My husband Duane later bought the farm from Elmer after milking with him for many years. After the renovation the interior of the barn still has the original timbers, some cow stanchions and drinking cups. The hay barn (which is available for party rental) still has the hay conveyor, ladders and many of Elmer's old tools hanging on the walls.
