“The Star” Owner’s, George and Charlotte (Raider) Allen. Charlotte lived on this farm from age 5 until marriage. Fred and Nellie Raider bought the farm in 1947, and built the house and barn about that time. The barn was reconditioned in 1996 and stands on the original pillow blocks. “The Star quilt was my mother’s favorite. From all of her quilts, she used “The Star” as a bed cover until the time came when she could no longer care for herself. Mom stripped tobacco and cared for live stock in this barn; she was a house wife and raised 4 girls and 2 boys in her “spare” time. She passed, December 5, 1995.” The Allen’s bought the farm in 1996 and built their new home in 2000. With improvements, the original home is now used as rental property.
