A visit to Fairview
Last week-end we drove to Fairview to visit Jason and Jessie. We were able to see lots of historical sites. My favorite was an old green chest that came across the plains in a covered wagon. Inside the chest was a beautiful hand stitched wedding dress that belonged to my great-great-great-grandmother who died while crossing the plains. The dress in the picture was made from the slip skirt from that hand stictched wedding dress. We also were able to see my great-great grandparents home in Fairview. While inside the museum we also saw a picture of the Vance brothers...one was Tom's Great-Great-Grandfather. It was amazing to see that both of our relatives founded Fairview. It was so beautiful there and we had a wonderful time at Jessie's parents cabin just 30 minutes from Fairview. As you can see from the pictures we had a blast and the scenery was breathtaking. My favorite part was the yummy food. Jessie is a fabulous cook and Jason barbecued some delicious steaks too. We were very blessed that Barb and Scott Elder shared their fabulous cabin with us!
