Bernhard's farm in present-day Penryn

Bernhard's original farm is mostly intact, and currently produces wheat, corn, and beef. The current owners, J. Marlin Myer and his brother Gerald, tell me the farm has been in the Myer family since 1940. They say the original farm house is made of square logs, and is contained within the left-hand portion of the farm house in the middle of the view.

According to Cousin Ron, having two front doors was common for the period. Once a family had the ability to expand the house, the original door was used by the family, and the new door was for guests and opened into a parlor, where the family's best things were on display.

The two ponds are fed by a perennial spring, which has flowed since the earliest written records. Native American artifacts have been found at the site, suggesting it was likely a pre-colonial settlement as well.
