Family history. A novel idea.

The Real Stone House

 

The Real Stone House

In 2007 my husband and I visited the original property, located at a big bend in the road, where the family settled in 1850. To the left, the road leads uphill to the site of the stone house.

The cube-shaped stone house was built in the late 1850’s and stayed in the family for about 100 years.

 

 

And here is how it looked in 2007. In 2002 the property was purchased by the National Park Service as an interpretive site along the 1200 mile Ice Age National Scenic Trail.
