 This is the O'Bier home now located inside the Germantown Colony

They took it apart and moved it from the Shonagloo land many years ago.
 It was a neat old place. I can remember it well, even when we had
put plumbing in it. More fun than going to the outhouse and well for
water. I almost drove the tractor into the front of it when I was 4
with my Uncle Tilon. Might have some black & whites somewhere. I'll
have to work on the bio of Mom. Get back to you on that one.

  According to Joy Web they  had promised to restore this cottage when they accepted it.  

  So far nothing has been done.

A few exiting events preceded the final tour of the cellar - such as finding rattle

snakes in the cellar and watching a panther emerge from under the house. Sorry

no more cellar tours!
