This is where everyone went horseback riding in Jerrie's childhood. It is a very old house in Georgetown.
is the conservatory in the Hamile House. The Hamile House is a very famous part of Georgetown. Jerrie has said that the
conservatory would be a wonderful place to grow "tomatoes". Jerrie loves tomatoes as she is Italian. Her grandparents
came to Georgetown with her mom to Georgetown in the early 1900s. Now Jerrie & John grow vegetables in the
house in the winter. Jerrie gets her love of homesteading from her roots of being Italian.
AT SILVER PLUME, COLORADO
Silver Plume is the home of Jerrie's father, Jerry Buckley. Her grandmother, Alice
Griffen was the first baby born in the state of Colorado. That is how Jerrie comes from a pioneer family. That is another
side of how she has homesteading in her blood. Of course at that time everyone homesteaded. Nowdays, the word "homesteading"
The Buckley family had 13 children. Eight of the boys had their own baseball team.
There were 8 Buckley boys and another person for the 9th player. Baseball was one of the sports that the Buckley's enjoyed.
