The “About Us” page has been the most challenging page for me to write. I am a very private person and I don’t express myself well. I am writing this from my heart so please be patient.
First, we do not own WHITE BARN Estate, God has chosen us to be its care- taker. It is His vision; I have prayed, listened, and been guided. He has surrounded us with the people needed to help bring WHITE BARN Estate to fruition. I believe whole-heartedly that it takes a village to raise children, build a business, and prosper in life. There have been so many blessings along this journey.
As God’s plan unfolds, I can clearly see the vision, beginning with the Moss family land-claim in 1864 through the various owners that have loved and cared for the land by adding pieces of themselves…and finally, to Mrs. Maria Walker that continually prayed for the place and grounds until her passing; WHITE BARN Estate has a peace about it that is unexplainable and I give credit to her for that.
Along this journey we have been so blessed by the friends and businesses that have helped. A special thank you for all the help and willingness to share…..
