Hiram Schofield came here from Boscobel, Wisconsin in 1870 and homesteaded 40 acres located in the Town of Unity, north and west of Spencer. Upon retirement Mr. and Mrs. Schofield bought a small house on Main Street, next door to the former Lutheran Parsonage. At that time their son, George, and wife took over the farm. When he retired, George sold the farm to his son, Lee, and he and his wife spent their last years in the home formerly occupied by his parents.
The Lee Schofields later sold the farm to their son Ray and wife, the present owners. The farm acreage has been increased from time to time and now totals 280 acres and they keep a herd of 54 milk cows and 24 heifers.
