State searches for home, farm nominees
If your farm or home (in whole or part) has been in continuous family ownership for 100 years or 150 years, you are eligible to apply for the 2009 Century Farm or Home Award or the 2009 Sesquicentennial Farm or Home Award.
These awards will be presented at a special program during the Wisconsin State Fair (Aug. 6 - 16, 2009).
The farm or home (in whole or part) must have been in continuous family ownership. Title of the Century property or Title of the Sesquicentennial property today must reside in a blood relative of the original owner, or a legally adopted child of a descendant. Continuous residence in the state or on the property is not required, but the title to the property must be continuous. An abstract of title is the best evidence of continuous family ownership.
Kathleen Walsh, St. Croix County Register of Deeds, has the application forms available at the Register of Deeds Office at the St. Croix County Government Center at 1101 Carmichael Road in Hudson.
For more information write or call the office, 386-4652.
