Property Description

Built in 1910, this farmhouse features original wood framing and trim throughout, which was harvested from the surrounding timber and remains in excellent condition. Upon the completion of construction, McLean County historical documents noted this home to be "considered by many, as the best farmhouse in the county." This property was mainly engaged in livestock operations in the early years where several outbuildings, which no longer exist, can be identified in historical photos and a few remaining landmarks. This historical farmhouse was considered by the producers of the television series Fargo for one season of filming. All the original blueprints of the home are available and will stay with the property. Only three families have been in possession of this property since 1910.
