John Rager Farmhouse
Posted November 29, 2017, by Susan Rager (sgrager [at] ragerlaw,com)

This home was built by the paternal great-grandfather of my spouse. It remained in the family until the death of his grandfather in 1942. It is a beautiful home, and I am glad to find this page with details on its current status. My husband's father was born in this home in 1898. It must have been a good omen. He lived until he was 106 years old. Would love to see photos of the inside if they are available.
