Home to The Big WELL
I went to the home of my
Greensbuerg, Kansas. Its
a small town and not much
Greensberg Kansas Does
have it one tourist trap:)

The world largest hand
dug well and rare
Pics of my grandparents Farm. Many of the
old barns that housed horses, cows and grain
are falling apart. I still remember every thing
as if it was yesterday . Its sad to see the farm
in this condition.
The farm is still operational to day by my 2
Crops that the farm produce are wheat, corn,
& milo ( Feed for Cattle) . The farm is also
ranched and produces oil from its oil wells :)
