     John and Gail Andersen have under their safe keeping four old "tourist registers" which have been handed down from owner to owner.  The oldest dates back to September 8, 1914.  All are filled with some of the most fantastic penmanship and fancy "swirl" font script.  Following, are just a few examples of some of the fine messages left by guests of yesteryears.

 July 25 to Aug 16 1921.  "Many memories cling to Tower Farm and the beauty of its surroundings, Pine Tree Hill, the Lake the sunrise and the glorious sunsets, must always be a sweet ??? to us from this our first visit.  We have enjoyed so much the peace and quietness of it all and leave with regret, wishing to return.  R. A. Williams"
