The Prairie Room has a queen size bed, with a large closet for clothes, robe for guests, old heirloom secretary in room. Pictures are a variety, with a Bierdstadt on one one.. Depicting the prairie life and how life was back in the early 1890’s when the farm was a homesteaded.
The room has pine finished woodwork and is hopefully a reminder of the folks who came to western Kansas to find a new life, survive and raise their family and at the same time forge a path for future immigrants.
The black table for the lamp is a remnant of the Shields United Methodist Church now closed. It is a symbol of the vibrant, colorful and many faceted lives of the people who came to the Shields area. They lived and died here and found a good life.
The Windmill Room, the most striking piece is the Windmill quilt, make by Dashing Denim. A local friend who does denim quilts, wall hangings, ornaments etc. Windmills are a symbol of life, hope, survival and future. They are quickly being removed and replaced by electric pumps etc. May windmills always be remembered as a sign of “Hope” and the best is yet to come.
