     History
    This was originally the town train station, but was moved to it's present location and converted into a private home by Danish immigrants in 1905.

    The property was throughout most of it's used life the largest blacksmith and auto repair business in the area.

    As of June 2014, the property has been sold and the buildings have been demolished,

    The resident of the property spent his most of his life there except for when he was drafted to fight in WWI and died childless in 1967.

    BTW: I got the story from the next-door neighbor.

    As of 2010, the building that housed the blacksmith has burned down.

     Future Plans
    The property was part of a disputed estate, but it was recently settled. The owner has it listed for sale, but the porperty is too small to build on and will likely remain unsold.

    This building will probably go to compost.
