Storm clouds break over the Broadacres Farm near C Carnation, WA. This historic dairy farm is on the National Register of Historic Places Six years after they were married, William and Estella Adair bought 110 acres in the Snoqualmie Valley next door to her parents place near the community of Vincent which lies northwest of the current town of Carnation in Kings County Washington. In the early years flood and shifting river channels caused them to abandoned there home and establish a new place on their property to the south. In 1915 they built a farmhouse in the Craftsman style. William set about replacing his temporary structures with more permeant ones. In 1922, Will Adair constructed a hay bam using the new bow-truss roof configuration. He was among the first Snoqualmie Valley dairymen to build such a bam which was designed to maximize the interior volume of the hay loft. Other farmers quickly followed Adair's example and today many barns in the Snoqualmie Valley utilized this design. High on the barn's north end, in bold black letters below the hay door ,were painted the words “Broadacre Farm-1922” This is the first time this name for the farm appears in public Will Adair milked his 55 cows by hand until he retired in 1945. In the photo the building in front of the barn is the Milkhouse and Milking Parlor. It was built in the late 1940s after peter Sinnenas bought the farm. This complex of four adjoining buildings were altered by Peter’s son Ed over time as milking technology and size of herds changed. The milking parlor was one of the first in valley, and the additions date from the 1970s to 1990s. The complex is attached to and functionally integrated with the 1922 hay bam.
