Greer family celebrates farm centennial


One hundred years ago, in 1910, William A. Greer came to Delia from the State of Washington to start a wheat grain homestead. The farm was passed on to his son, Charlie, in 1926, who ran it for the rest of his life and Bill (William G.) Greer took it over in 1960, when his father, Charlie, passed away. It is now in the hands of Bill’s son, Douglas. On Saturday, July 3, the Greer family met up at the farm to celebrate its centennial. As can be seen from the aerial shot of the farm pictured above, over 100 family members and friends came together over the weekend to celebrate and a centennial plaque was mounted near the house to mark the event.
