Thank You STEWART!!!
The Ledges Property Owners want to thank Stewart for repairing and installing the Ledges sign. It is on the corner of McCurry Rd and North Gate Rd.
It is even lit up at night!
He also removed those large annoying bushes! He has made the entire corner and his property a beautifull improvement to the Ledges!

Be sure to stop and see the beautiful garden on S. Gate before the end of summer. I enjoy it every year! The gardener has owned his home in the Ledges for 33 years and his passion is obviously his flowers.

Our Ledges bluebird nesting boxes enabled 40 bluebirds to be born, raised and fledged into the wild this past year. Some of the bluebirds are continuing to stay here throughout the winter, thanks to the housing units we are providing for them, so don't be surprised if you see a bluebird this winter.

General information

The area surrounding the present day golf course takes the name "Ledges" from its layered outcroppings of St. Peter Sandstone. Local folklore states that wolves reared their cubs in what is known as the Wolf Den Cave, located near the number 13 green of the golf course. An old oak, known as "Barter Oak," was supposedly the site of negotiations between the Indians and white traders. The Ledges was popular for picnicking and outings beginning in the 1850's. In the early part of 20th century the property belonging to John Porter was heavily used by weekend picnickers in their horse and buggies and Model T's. John Porter gladly allowed people to travel across his property to the popular ledges and wolf's den area. Surveryors discovered that the drive going to the old farm and stables was on John and Dora Porter's land. They signed an agreement and deeded the land for the road free of charge. Hjalmer Anderson bought this property on behalf of Security Builders in 1929. He and his brother planted hundreds of trees, built the dam on the creek, and named their property The Security Outing Place. Plans to fully develop the recreation potential of the area never materialized and the Andersons sold the property to Mr. Swanson of Elco Tool in 1940. In 1943 he in turn sold it to Ed Green, who renamed it the Evergreen Farm. Alfred G. Bowen obtained the 330 acre Evergreen Farm in 1949. Bowen had been a salesman for Gardner Machine and recently started a successful venture based on his invention of a new grinding machine. In 1953 he bought an additional 100 acres from George Atwood and the first subdivision into lots was made along Love Road by Bowen Projects Inc. in 1954. The first residents were the Paul and Janet Vogt, followed in 1955 by the Gunderson's and Eichman's. Love Road was named by Janet Vogt's great grandparents, George and Stella Love who owned a vegetable farm on Love Road. Love and McCurry roads were gravel and mud in early 1954. Love Road ended at McCurry, but people would take a short cut to the north to reach the Dwyer farm near Rockton Road. In 1957 seventy more acres were obtained from Dr. Crockett and the lots on Kinnikinnick Drive were surveyed, with the Mason's and Baucom's occupying their homes by the end of that year. By 1961 an additional 110 acres had been added and other developments were initiated to the west and southwest of the original Bowen Property.

Who is more handsome? Backyard showdown!
Does anyone know what these guys are? If I’ve done my research correctly I’m guessing Gray Catbirds but don’t know for sure...they love oranges!
We saw a Bluebird while walking Warblers Way today.
Just a heads up about higher than usual coyote activity in the area. Last night coyotes killed a beautiful Red Fox just 10 feet from our garage. I've noticed a lot of coyotes and foxes on my back yard trail cams lately. Keep an eye on your pets if you let them out.
