Notes
Survey number HABS WI-150
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-29).
Building/structure dates: 182 initial construction
Significance: The house is a small but typical example of a type of half-timber construction built by early German settlers in Wisconsin prior to the Civil War. The carpenters and joiners who built these were skilled craftsmen trained in Germany and the technique is one practiced there in rural areas since the Middle Ages and known in Germany as Fachwerkbau. Such buildings are unique among pioneer constructions in America and are fast disappearing due to neglect and destruction.
