Treasure Chest Thursday -- 1939 Lease Agreement

I was sifting through my special shoe box this morning and found this Lease between my grandfather and my great-grandfather (his father-in-law).

I wasn't aware that grandpa leased the farm before he bought it. James S. Poulsen was 75 at the time of this lease agreement so it was probably a good thing that grandpa was helping to support him.

  1. Love these old documents. The typewriter. The cross outs. The signatures. The year I was Born. Neat.
    Thanks for sharing!
