Emily Kuenzli, the oldest daughter of Christian and Magnalena married John Baptiste Schwalm December 31, 1883. Their life together began just 1.5 miles west of Kuenzli homestead. A very small 9x13 two story stone dwelling, named "Histonia" served as a first home for the newlyweds.

In 1898 a large two story frame residence, now known as "Mission Manor" was constructed. This was to become their lifelong home where they were to be blessed with six children.

Meals were cooked on wood stoves in the late 1800s. During the warm months, food preparation took place in a "summer kitchen" which was built near the home.

By the early 1900s, the present 1,265 acres had been established. Morris, John and Emily's son, held the land together until it was deeded in 1966 to the Redmon family. Pearle Redmon's mother was Clara, the daughter of John and Emily Schwalm.

In 2004 Billy and Kathy Hogue were given the opportunity to acquire the land. Bill had been looking for something like this all his life. It is now the Flint Hills Division of Mission Valley Ranch. Bill and Kathy Hogue take pride in carrying on the stewardship of this historical Flint Hills estate.

50 years as a home builder has given Bill the knowledge to preserve the remaining structures on this property for future generations. You are all encouraged to view your past through new eyes and reflect on its true value.
