    Unfortunately all I know is it has been here since at least the early 1950s. I tried asking some locals and they had no idea it was even there. I assume it has been semi abandoned since 1986 at least judging by the phone books.

    *edit* Hell, all I needed to do was talk to my mother. Just got off the phone with her and she shed a little light on the situation. She showed horses back in the early 70s and was quite successful I might add. She got bucked once by her horse Dancer and sustained pretty serious injuries. It seems that my family took Dancer here to be trained after the incident. She even remembered the name Pied Piper vaguely (see pics).

     Future Plans
    I am sure it will be demolished soon as housing has enveloped the area and the property has been sold.
