Biographical history

The Haney family settled in Salmon Arm around 1903. They purchased eighty acres of land and raised cattle and grew wheat, apples, and pears. They had two children, Marjorie and Robert Verron (Vern).

R.J. Haney considered himself a gentleman farmer. He was a lender of money, providing financing to community members who were turned down by the local branch of the Bank of Hamilton.

Mr. and Mrs. Haney separated in 1917. The property was divided and Mrs. Haney relocated to the coast. The house remained in the family until Marjorie's death in 1984. Forty acres of the original farm and the house were given to the District of Salmon Arm. The property was to be developed as a park under the management of the Salmon Arm Museum. The other forty acres went to the SPCA.
