Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

CIRCUS FARMS # 1 REVISITED




I had so much discussion with people yesterday about their memories of the farm, and some photos I received that were taken last week, it put me in a nostalgic mood. So that will be my subject today, the strange thing is that the place seems to be frozen in time, it hasn't changed in 35 years.

I moved to comment on the dish and see Mr. Lee beat me to it. You are fast Mr Lee. Now I see what Buckles ment. I see these things everywhere. I assume these have something to do with TV. Kind of like Cable.

There are a couple other ghanges, there used to be a huge Weeping Willow tree where the flag pole stands, they have a nice stone border around the bushes by the house,( there is no shortage of field stones) and have replaced the old fashioned metal roof with shingles.

The gate to the house is on Snyder-Domer Rd.(runs west out of Tremont City). The picture behind the hay barn was taken from Knollwood, which dead ends at the driveway.
