View of Opies' Farm

In 1931, Opie moved back to the family farm to help his aging father. Opie and Fredda remained and worked the farm on Shatto Road outside of Ripley, West Virginia until the late 1970s. He was a self sufficient and progressive farmer.
The day the banks closed, as a result of the depression, the Jackson County sheriff met Opie at the mouth of Joe's Run to relay the message of the banks closure. The sheriff asked if he could help in any way. Opie said that he had 75 cents and a few checks in his pocket. The checks were not of any use at that time, but that he was in better financial condition than most. He indicated that he had plenty of food from the farm and that he could provide most of his needs.
