Acosta Tool Shed

Acosta Tool ShedPedro (Pete) Acosta from the Philippines arrived at the Neely farm in 1943, and farmed there for the next 46 years. He and his wife, June Johnston, grew and sold crops such as green beans, potatoes, rhubarb, and strawberries from their roadside stand. They never lived in the mansion, but in a small worker’s home nearby. During this time Pete constructed a wooden shed for berries that today sits on the grounds of the mansion, as a reminder of this hard working, dedicated farmer and his family.
