The first phase of the park, which could be completed in 1980, will be located on the west side of Whittaker Road, shown in the upper center of the picture where the barn and silo are now visible. Later phases, to be finished over a 10-year period could be built on the land shown in the lower portion of the picture.

ALFALFA FIELD: Scio township soil is ideal for alfalfa growing. Alfalfa makes a good hay crop for almost all farm animals when mixed with other grasses. It is of value, too, as a soil improver. Wheat is another crop which grows in abundance in the township. This photograph was taken near Zeeb Rd.

Haying The Old Way Four generations of the Ticknor family take a break while doing some old-fashioned haying at the Ticknor centennial farm located on Stone School Road, near Packard Road. The family used an old hay loader which they are standing by and a tractor to do the work which is now normally done by a hay baler. The work used to be called "putting up the hay" and included the use of pitchforks. It's now called hay baling. From left are Donald Ticknor Sr., his son, Donald Ticknor Jr., the latter's sons Carl D. Ticknor and Dennis D. Ticknor and Carl's son, Brian. (News Photo by Larry E. Wright).
