The property was later passed down to Charles, son John and then to his son Carl who currently owns and works the land.  Today 300 acres are pasture land, running a 30 cow/calf operation and 160 acres are dry land farm raising wheat and hay.

Several historic buildings are still in place including Anna’s original homestead house, a barn, three chicken houses and a metal shop.  A windbreak was planted in 1948 which still provides a valuable service on days when the wind blows.
