Eric Frederick Noren and his wife Charlotta immigrated from Sweden and settled in Haxtun, Colorado where a small, Swedish settlement called the Fairfield Community was located in the 1880s.
At Haxtun they lived in a sod house and had four children. Eric Frederick passed away and Charlotta left Haxtun to obtain the homestead near Holyoke, in 1916. In 1956, after Charlotta passed, her grandson, Delbert Haynes bought the land. Delbert and his wife, Emily married on August 24, 1944, and still own the ranch. They had four sons. Three sons and two grandsons ranch nearby.
