Schrader: Local preserves agricultural history
Denny Rehn comes from three generations of Kirkland farmers. His grandfather Art purchased a 130-acre farm on McNeal Road in 1933 and it has been in the family since.
Earlier this year, I had the opportunity to meet Denny and see some of his collection of agricultural memorabilia he has amassed in just the past decade. It is housed in a 60-feet-by-80-feet metal farm building and includes a second-floor mezzanine. Some eight years ago he moved the bulk of his collectibles to a second farm he also owns north of Kirkland, this one over the border in Boone County on Stone Quarry Road.
Entering his private museum, one finds he has organized and categorized the artifacts so they can be easily viewed.
