Border Homestead Watercolor

Enos Border, Kathie's second Great-grandfather homesteaded in Victor, Iowa. When we visited that area, we went to see the house on that homestead. The original old log home was replaced with the house. We took pictures and made sketches of the house and surrounding country. Later, we gave the sketches and pictures to Leon Gaub, an artist friend. He hand painted this watercolor of the house from the pictures and sketches. Unfortunately, the house was quite run down, but Leon's watercolor brings it back to life as it would have looked in it's day.
