About the Ellis Family Preserve
Robert and Blanche Ellis bought the historic Tharald Homestead in 1936. It was most recently occupied by Fred E. Ellis, his wife Marilyn, and their children until Fred's death in 2010. In 2017, the Ellis family donated the estate to the San Juan Preservation Trust. The property includes the original home, outbuildings, and 340 acres of woodland, open pastures, a pond, and coastline.
