Butterflies


The Sonnenberg family was honored in 2013 for their Century Farm.

The Verden Bacon Herrick family consisting of nine children purchased the farm in 1913 after moving back from northern Wisconsin. They milked cows, raised crops and made a home. Verden's son Earl and his wife bought the from and raised their five children. Their daughter Dorothy and her husband Harold Jones bought the farm after Mabel's death. Their daughter Doreen and Dan Sonnenberg moved there in 1997 to raise their family on the farm.

All the butterflies seen on the barn are ones that have been seen on the farm.
