From the Owner
“The Collins Homestead offers a glimpse of how Irish immigrants brought their love of the land to the new country..building the same walls of stone and fields of green they left behind....the farmhouse was built in the 1840s and the wood work inside is original ash from trees on the property...the back acreage offers spectacular views of the large hills soaring above the flats....autumn finds an explosion of color and calm; a clear cold night lets one see the Milky Way splashed across the endless sky....Spring brings Nature's first green as gold and brings the blossoms of a prayer garden with memorial trees planted in honor of family who have flown ahead to Heaven....an Angel stands guard over our tree memorial and offers peace and quiet within which to contemplate and pray, if one wishes...”
