White Farm House

The White Farm House was built in 1900 and was originally located in Windsor and then moved to an adjacent farm owned by the Von Trotha Brothers. When Chuck Firestien, Conrad and Mabel’s son, decided to marry Ruth Brug, Conrad went to the Von Trotha Brothers and said, “Chuck’s getting married and he needs a house”.

So the Von Trotha Brothers moved the house to it’s current location from a nearby farm in 1951. The newly constructed Shark’s Tooth Pipeline supplied water to the house.
