Mills county farms for sale
A rustic southern Indiana town that was established in 1851 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places is up for sale, with an asking price of $3.8 million. The Brown County town of Story is 17.4 acres of property, including a historic general store, an old grain mill, numerous barns, rental cabins, and outbuildings that include two 19th-century privies, The Herald-Times reported . Rick Hofstetter bought the town at a sheriff’s sale 20 years ago and restored the properties. In March, the town was registered on the National Register of Historic Places. “We now want to assure the town’s continued survival with an orderly transition into safe hands,” Hofstetter said. The 62-year-old lawyer noted he plans to continue operating the Story Inn as a lessee/tenant. “The town’s fortunes should be decoupled from our hospitality operations,” he explained recently. “Macy’s doesn’t own the mall.” Jacob and Kate Ebel … [Read more...] about Town of Story is for sale.

MALVERN, Iowa (Reuters) - The Black Hawk military helicopter flew over Iowa, giving a senior U.S. agriculture official and U.S. senator an eyeful of the flood damage below, where yellow corn from ruptured metal silos spilled out into the muddy water. The contents of grain silos which burst from flood damage are shown in Fremont County Iowa, U.S., March 29, 2019. Photo taken March 29, 2019. REUTERS/Tom Polansek And there’s nothing the U.S. government can do about the millions of bushels of damaged crops here under current laws or disaster-aid programs, U.S. Agriculture Under Secretary Bill Northey told a Reuters reporter who joined the flight. The USDA has no mechanism to compensate farmers for damaged crops in storage, Northey said, a problem never before seen on this scale. That’s in part because U.S. farmers have never stored so much of their harvests, after years of oversupplied markets, low prices and the latest blow of lost sales from the U.S. trade war … [Read more...] about U.S. disaster aid won’t cover crops drowned by Midwest floods

John Carlisle Detroit Free Press Published 8:03 AM EST Dec 24, 2018 KEWEENAW PENINSULA – The view from Tom Chobanian’s house is a thick wall of trees. It wasn’t always, though. “There used to be nothing but whorehouses here,” said the wiry 29-year-old, pointing into the woods, recounting family memories. “This used to have 600 people. They had their bars right here, and, right here, there used to be nothing but wood stacked up. Lumber." Chobanian lives in Donken, an Upper Peninsula town that isn’t really a town anymore. More than a century ago, the Case Lumber Mill stood here, and a whole town was built around it, named by the mill owner for his sons — Donald and Kenneth. It had a schoolhouse, a post office, a company store, a main street and, according to local lore, a few places where lumberjacks could unwind and get wild. But decades after the mill closed, Donken slowly vanished. Now it's just a brief interruption in a … [Read more...] about For select few in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, a ghost town is home
