|Biography/History||The farm buildings were built by the members of Kudrna family, Bohemian immigrants from Crimea. Among the buildings, shown in photos from the late 1970's there are at least two, that could be houses, later remodeled into the barns and sheds. The old barn is a stone building with clay whitewashed exterior and was perhaps the first house at the farm. It still has an entry, framed roof and lean-to addition at the back of the building. It looks like a traditional farmhouse of this area. The same applies to the stone shed which has the same architecture style and is constructed from the same stones as the old barn. A new barn, a stone building with a gable roof and side addition might be the second house as well. And finally there is a third house, the newest on this site. The two cellars might be purposed as a storage and as a storm shelter.|
