The Hahn HomePlace was completed about 1929, using wood and bricks from the crumbling old hotel that was situated on the property when Louis Hahn and Auguste Hadamek bought it.

Matthew's dog Simon—the smartest dog ever—died in 2014. He could open the screen door and scoot inside before the door slammed on his tail. When walking on the beach, he could fetch his master a cold beer from strangers' coolers, and they always laughingly forgave him this diverting trick. We all loved him dearly.
Matthew's grandpa introduced him to the childhood pleasures of country life—driving the tractor, going on hayrides, hiding between the bales in the hay barn, sitting around a bonfire at night, listening to the coyotes howl upriver. Now Matt passes on these joys to his own daughter and nephews and nieces.
