Sam came to the Ninga District with his family in 1882.  He worked for others for a small wage until he bought this property on October 23, 1893.  He married Isabel in March 14, 1894 and raised 12 children on this property.

In 1966 the property was sold to the Peters Family, also immigrated from Russia.

There is no home visable on the land except for this truck.  The front of the property from the road is completely grown over by cariganas.  I took a walk down a field lane and was met by many birds and butterflies but the dense bush did not reveal what it was hiding.

I do love this old truck that sits proudly outside its home.
