It was Eighteen hundred sixty nine
when they made their way to here
A pioneer man with a simple design
and his woman who had not a fear

Together they gathered every stone
working hard to fulfill their dream
building walls made to stand alone
with windows to show views serene

A Hundred forty two years have gone
since the love they shared was new
now all that remains are dreams forgone
and a stone wall with a window view
