Wenceslaus Hallama settled in
Canada in 1891, and purchased land near Grande Pointe
from his Uncle Joseph Schwab four years later.
He married Barbara Blahnik from Bohemia and they
had two children. Wenceslaus was the first farmer
in the area to own a seed drill, and a gasoline tractor.
In 1938, their only son Joseph took over the farm until
1971. In 1971 his son Edward took over the farm.
