Frank & Amanda WilliamsThis farm and orchard has been in the family since 1912, when Felix and Erik’s great-grandfather Frank Williams purchased the land. Frank built a cabin and sauna in 1914, then invited his wife Amanda to come live on the land with him.The house that we live in now was finished in 1920. Before the furniture arrived, it was used as a social gathering and dance hall for the Finnish families in the area.Frank and Amanda kept cows, chickens, pigs, and at least one pampered horse. Vestiges of their gardens remain — grape hyacinths grow by the walkways; onions sprout in the pasture. A dozen apple trees Frank planted comprise the old orchard.
