Past Prologue

I don’t usually reblog things, but on this occasion, I thought it appropriate.

In the next few days, the Durst Family farm will be officially recognized as one of Missouri’s Century Farms, i.e. farms that have been in a particular family for 100+ years. The Dursts purchased their original acreage in 1909, and have been in possession of the farm for 104 years.

Here is the farm as I remember it from my childhood. Today only two of these structures remain: the white barn to the left and the farmhouse in the center foreground.
