The home, hog barn, and other surrounding buildings each have their own unique story. You will first notice the Soneson home in the middle of the farm. It is a cottage style, prairie styled farmhouse with a lane wrapped around it. The home itself is an original 1926 Montgomery Ward home kit that was ordered, brought in by railroad and assembled on site. The garage was an old railroad depot building from Ellis that was moved in later.
The original hog barn was built in the 1940's. It once housed hogs from the barn to the creek. The two chicken coops are original as well. The large coop housed the hens and roosters, while the small coop housed the chicks. Later on, they housed goats and coon dogs, among other things.
Today the hog barn and chicken coops have been restored and are open during the annual seasonal events.
