The plan had been to offer the property for sale. As my sister and I were spending time working on preparing the property last summer, we began asking each other if we were really going to be able to let go. We too have felt that this property was enchanted. We both had sentimental attachment to this place. My sister and her late husband had spent many hours there while he was alive. The thought of letting it go, and possibly not having it shared with the public was difficult.
Eventually we started to discuss what if we were able to buy the Cambre house and farm? What would we do with it and how would we be able to continue to share it with others? How could we afford to keep it up? We are both single women, raising our children and working full time. We came up with several ideas. Some far fetched, but some very reasonable.
