This page comes straight from the Kjelstad family photo album. Several of the photos give you a glimpse of farming in Ohop Valley back in the early 1900s when tractors weren’t part of the landscape yet. (That’s probably e Matt Kjelstad with the calves in the bottom right.)

The top right image features Ohop Valley pioneer Olava Kjelstad in front of a ca. 1915 automobile. Olava may not look it here, but she was quite the mover and shaker in her day.
