Description

Image is a summer view of the Colony home and barn of Virgil and Lillian Eckert on their farm tract #100 on the north edge of Palmer. The house is of the log “cabin” style as were many of the Colony homes. The round-roofed barn was not typical of the Colony barns and was one of only three or four constructed of that style. A smaller log building is visible behind the house. Scattered birch trees are around the farmstead with heavy birch forest beyond.
