Orris and Margaret Green appreciate the peace and solitude of the country living after spending much of their married life in Massachusetts. Birds flock to their shelterbelts filled with chokecherry, plum and apple trees. The sweet aroma of freshly cut hay fills the country side. "I try to tell people where I live, but they keep saying, 'Who used to live there?'" said Orris Green. He tells them it's the Eckelberg farmstead located northeast of Dunn Center. "I say it's my house now," he said. "We lived back East, but we wanted to live in the country," he said.
Richard and Loraine Selinger eased into their retirement years with an avid interest in horticulture. Their yard and garden located on Baker Avenue is a showcase of perennial flowers and raised beds of vegetables. Richard managed Slope Electric Cooperative Inc., and they owned a greenhouse in New England. Richard recently took a Master Gardener refresher course through the NDSU Extension Service. As partial payback, he answers questions related to horticulture and has spoken to several groups. Richard is seldom in the house, preferring to work in the garden or ride his 1300 Honda.
