Prior to the road grading on the north side of section 18, the steep hill was the site of hill climbing competition for cars. According to reports, few cars ever made the forward climb, but the competition was always challenging. Tobogganing, skiing, and sledding were the winter activities on the hill. This land is now (1997) farmed by Wayne Bremer. As Herman's family increased, the house became cramped, so remodeling was done and finally in the early 1900's several rooms were added. During late 1929 Herman and Louise built a new smaller home. At that time Harry and Emma Bremer moved into the big house. In the mid 1930's the smaller house was moved one half mile east to Fairview section 18. Herman, Louise and Albert lived there until 1939 when Herman and Louise moved into Ocheyedan. In 1917 Herman bought another 160 acres, this quarter was in section 24 of Horton township, the northeast corner. This farm was bought for $24,000. The farm became Carl Bremer's, then Dennis Bremer's and at present (1997) is farmed by Keith Bremer.
