Parcels of the land were homesteaded by the Schmid Family ancestors as early a 1882. The “Upper Place” was homesteaded in 1912. The lower parcels were bought and added in the mid 1930’s making a total of nearly 900 acres. Goldie, Marvin and Sydney Schmid are the current owners. They recently placed a conservation easement on the property, preventing development or subdivision. The Schmid Family Ranch continues to operate today as a unique working ranch.
