Keasey P. 0. the Home o! Mr. and Mrs. G. H. Sitts
Surrounded on all sides by giant
fir and cedar trees with a stream
of pure mountain water flowing
tli rough the center of a clearing is
located the picturesque farm home
of Mr. and Mrs. G. II. Sitts on Hook
Creek about 9 miles westerly from
Vornonla In Columbia County. This
is the end of the road. It is as far
as the road Is cut out, so when
travelers get this far they must stop
or go further only by walking over
mountain trails, through dense tim
ber and underbrush. Nearly twenty-two
years ago Mr. ' Sitts wended
his way up Rock Creek looking for
a place where he could locate a
homestead with enough good level
land from which he could make a
living and a home. When he had
gone aa far as he could he decided
that this would be an ideal place for
such purposes. Accordingly he sur
veyed out what he wanted and then
going to the Land Office homestead
ed 140 acres'.
Ho built a houso out of shakes and
timbers which he cut out of the for
est with his axe and saw. He began
to clear some land and to plant n
few fruit trees. He planted some
seed for hay. From that time on,
every year he has kept on adding
improvements until now he has a
most delightful place . to livo, well
improved, but stilt with the old
houso he first built, producing suf
ficient crops to meet his demands
and raising fruit enough for a dozen
On this place Mr. and Mrs. Sitts
now live, a happy, contented family,
or all that Is left of a family, their
children having married and moved
away. And here in this home is
the highest type of hospitality dis
played that exists today. No trav
eller or stranger ever enters the
Mi toc
gate leading up to this farm home
in the mountains without a realiza
tion that he has visited some of the
best people on earth. Nothing is
too good for a stranger who hap
pens to travel that way. Mrs. Sitts
prides herself in good old fash
ioned farm cooking and when she
has set a meal before a hungry per
son it is such a one as will he rel
ished for months afterward. She
keeps in her cellar a supply of fresh
milk and butter and when a tired,
hungry hunter or fisherman wanders
around to her kitchen door seeking
something refreshing he is rewarded
with a glass of pure, cold milk and
some bread and butter that cannot
be equalled in the most fashion
able hotel or eating house In the
On all sides of this picturesque
old house are located flower beds
of roses, dahlias, sweet peas, soldier
buttons and many other varieties
which give to the place a charming
Here also is located the post office
for the neighborhood mail and peo
ple for miles around got their mail
through this office. The original of
fice of Keasey was located several
miles down the creek but about
12 years ago Mr. Sitts was ap
pointed Post Master and moved the
office to his present home where It
still remains.
Altogether it is a delightful place
for any person to visit. In Rock
Creek there is good fishing and in
tho mountains there Is game to
hunt. During tho summer months
many people visit Keasey, tho home
of the Sitts' and no one ever regrets
the trip.
