At the farm of ANNA MARIE SIMPKINS and the late ROBERT SIMPKINS!

This Old-fashioned Athens County Farm Has Been In The Howard/Simpkins Family Since the 1800s.  

Anna Marie has decided the time has come to leave the family farm, consequently must sell generations of items currently located in

  2 Large Old Barns, Maple Syrup Shed, Antiquated Farm Buildings, Storage Cribs, 9-Room Victorian Farm House with Full Basement, 30’x30’ Pole Barn, Large Workshop, Yard Shed, and Other Areas Of The Farm. 

Some of the buildings and rooms of the dwelling are so jammed-packed full they cannot be entered at this point in time.  It is impossible to determine what these places hide from view!

Some of the articles have remained on the farm for well over a century, none of the farm artifacts have been offered for sale prior to this auction!

Step back in time, spend an early autumn day at an authentic 1800s Farm.
