The committee working on the Michaels farm project from the Concerned Taxpayers, which includes Mrs. Ada Mclntyre, Mrs. Pat Wait, Mrs. Maxine Andrews and Mrs. Walter West, say they feel in a rural area where growth is taking place, a county-wide effort of preser- vation and conservation of the farming history, could go a long way toward pulling together widely divergent interests. They point up that Washington commuters could begin to un- derstand the area to which they ha,,e moved. The Taxpayers committee feels the house on the farm could serve as a much needed community center where clubs would have meetings in most enjoyable surro,)dings. The committee also Vonts out that this is the largest area d land available in the county now that could be used for a public park. The Concerned Taxpayers say they have received pledges of assistance from prominent farmers of the county in the donation of animals for the farm and also in the farming operation. And the Taxpayers said they hope to enlist the aid of local garden clubs in planning and working toward the restoration of the gardens at the Michaels farm. The Concerned Taxpayers are asking for an initial grant from the state of $150,000.00 to use in the restoration of the house barn and grounds and also to help with the operating expenses until such time as admission fees and land rental could provide the brother to Entler's Hotel, where he died in Room I on the third r before his mer's arrival from Winchester.
