Families who lived here

The above image shows Mae & Paul Adams, who owned the Truby farmhouse from 1945 to 1961 (photo courtesy of their granddaughter, Diane Farineau Spears).

In the ~170 years since the house was built, 7 families have owned the house (including 3 generations of Trubys) and at least 1 family has rented.

More about all of these families later.
