A note from Bill Schaupp about temporarily living in this house when he moved to Oregon in 2012: "The former owner of what was the Black Swan Bead and Breakfast Inn found and purchased a letter on eBay from the gentleman who had that home built before it became the Field Station. After Boyd Wickman showed up randomly in 2010 and handed over his article that I’ve attached, along with some 8x10 B&W photos, she had a fine story to tell. Then along came me, needing somewhere to rent, making my first contact seeking rental space with this woman, and so it was that I inhabited both the cottage in the back and the room on the second story to the right of the front door for 3 + months while house hunting. Talk about landing where one 'ought' to be, eh?!"
