Historic Bed and Brakfast

Shirley Payne married Gary Schambach on January 1, 2018 in the barn here on the farm.  It was bitter cold but the guest brought s lot of joy and warmth to a loving couple and we had several heaters going too.  It was a fantastic event that people marvel at the unique atmosphere that lent itself to such a romantic setting.

The reception was at the log building that is Middleburg Steak and Seafood restaurant.  The historical setting added the occasion and the food was great.
