A dream that Art and Agnes Skone had to someday establish a place where Christians could come together to experience God in a natural, God Created, setting on Pickerel Lake.They purchased the property consisting of 120 acres plus a house, barn and cabin that was later named Linga Longa (linger longer) by Agnes.They brought with them several horses from their Double A Bar S Ranch on the Des Moines River near Ogden, IA as well as the orange Dodge pickup.The horse’s names are still visible on a board in the Campers Shelter, which was formerly the barn.In the early 1970’s they had Pickerel Lake renamed Little Mirror Lake.They planted a huge cross of flowers along the shores of the lake.In 2010 the flowers were replaced with white pavers that now form the cross, which is still Skonewood’s landmark today.
Today Skonewood has 25 campsites, 21 of the sites have 30-amp service & water and 4 have 50-amps & water.
In addition, around the grounds of Skonewood are tent camping sites.
Shortly thereafter they sold 40 acres of wooded property for ,500.00 to finance the Fellowship Center, raised ,000.00 from individual donations and Agnes sold several of her paintings.
This with a ,000.00 bank loan allowed for the ,000.00 construction of the Fellowship Center.
The ,000.00 bank loan was paid off in less than 5 years through the efforts of Agnes creating paintings and Art building the frames that they gave to individuals in return for contributions to Skonewood.
