DescriptionThe main house on the Lucken Farm near Portland North Dakota was built in 1888 and exhibits a mixture of styles, roof treatments, and textures. It possesses a Stick styling with the incorporation of the Italianate Style. The house has clapboard siding and is capped by a truncated hipped roof. There are two chimneys projecting from the flat sections of the roof, and two porches on the east and south facades were originally open but were enclosed in the 1930s. The leafless trees suggest the wintertime setting.
