I know the area and the people. The Braisher (Dad) and Wolfenden (Mom) families have lived in the valley since 1909. Grandpa Alfred Braisher drove the very last stage coach between Golden and Cranbrook before the railway put him out of business in 1912. After WWI he returned to establish Kingsclear Ranch just south of town. The farm is still ran by the Braisher family and celebrated it’s 100th anniversary and 5th or maybe even 6th generation in 2018. Archie Wolfenden came over from England in 1908 and built the Brisco General Store in 1912. In 1921 he sold the store and bought Fortress Ranch which later became Birchfield Farm. The farm has grown and is still home to the Wolfenden family. I truly am, "ahead by a century."
