They came to the Marian Hills Farm from as far away as the coast, traveling by air and auto back to the homestead farm where they had so many memories. It was great grandma’s 100th birthday, and she deserved a family reunion fit for a centenarian.

Since Judge Nathan Coleman first acquired the property in 1835, seven generations had lived on the 22.5 acres. Some in the original 1835 homestead, made of on-site bricks and timber from the nearby woods, and some in the 1914 brick farmhouse, with gorgeous woodwork, stained glass windows, and a kitchen that to this day holds echoes of the past.

And now, sons, daughters, grandkids and great grandkids gathered in the 1881 barn—the same barn in which they had gathered so many times before for weddings, reunions, dances, and celebrations. The same barn that had been featured on ABC’s The Bachelor.

White lights twinkled from the rafters, and a country breeze swept across the beautifully worn floorboards as music, dancing, and festivities carried on into the night.

This was their heritage, their home, from the tree-lined lane to the stone silo. And when they were together it was as if they had never left.
