Information on the website of the Southern Oregon Historical Society shows that the 636-acre Farm was purchased in 1857 by Michael and Martha Hanley. The property was inherited by Alice Hanley, the oldest surviving child of Michael and Martha. When Alice died, the property was inherited by her 3 nieces, Mary, Clair and Martha Hanley. The Southern Oregon Historical Society (SOHS) was founded in 1946, and both Clair and Mary Hanley were subsequently active in the organization. Mary was the last surviving Hanley living on the property. In 1982, she donated the remaining 37 acres to the Southern Oregon Historical Society to serve as a farm museum.
