The Paul Dillon Farm was honored with a Centu­ry Farm award at the 2017 Lincoln County Fair. Pres­ent to receive the award were Paul and Judy Dillon and their daughter and son-in-law, Kim and Tom Mielke. Paul is a member of the fourth generation of the family to live on the farm and Kim, who will eventually take over, is the fifth generation.
Alfred Luing bought a quarter section near Ivan­hoe, 160 acres, in early 1910 on a land agent pro­motional selling tour. This land was virgin prairie. Luing proceeded to have the ground broken for a home site, which may have been a requirement of the agreement.
