We have formed a non-profit corporation and are trying to buy a family homestead. The property includes 77 acres. The house was built in 1855 and is german fackwerk. It has nine bedrooms on the second floor. We intent to completely restore the outside and somewhat "update" the inside. We are still as ways away from being able to ask for money but hope to able to soon. If you are interested you can see more at: http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Ranch/2858/. Any suggestions and/or help, it would be very welcome. If we to get enough money to buy and restore the property, I will try to keep you up-to-date (maybe you would like to visit the property).
