The Funkhouser Farm in Hardy County

I went back in my photo files to find these unused pictures from four years ago. The Funkhouser Farm in Baker is rarely open to the public but it will be open again on September 25th as part of Heritage Weekend.

Tuesday Treasures

The log home was built around 1845 by Henry Funkhouser.  The front porch was enclosed around 1900. 

The property is on the National Register of Historic Places and is still owned by members of the Funkhouser family.


  1. It looks like a nice comfortable home to live in. Have a great day.

  2. It is remarkable that the property has remained in the family for so many years. Here in Ontario if a farm has been owned by subsequent generations of the original owner it receives the designation "Century Farm" and a suitable plaque is mounted.

  3. What a dream place, dear Linda, I'm so grateful to you for sharing always such wonderful images taking us back to the past of your so wonderful Land!
    This farm is truly amazing and extraordinarily well preserved and cared, it seems that a family is still living there.
    Take care and enjoy the remainder of your week

  6. ...what a lovely treasure, I'm glad that it has been restored.

  7. How lovely to see such a beautiful little farm. And nice to know it's been kept in the family. I wonder - is it still a working farm?

  8. If onlywalls could talk. Enjoyed seeing this place, thank you Linda!

  9. Nice to see these photographs ...

    All the best Jan
