Where Past Meets Present

Jim L.


Story Theme: Family

“My great-great-grandfather moved his family to Rock County in 1855 and established a farm in La Prairie Township. It was on that property that my father was born in 1924. A few years ago, I discovered that the farmhouse he was born in, and the one room schoolhouse he attended on Belding Road, still stand. That discovery deepened my love for this area that I’ve always called home.”
