Description

Image shows the farmstead of original Colonists Joseph & Blanche Puhl on tract #99 north of Palmer. Subsequently owned by Colonists Neil & Margaret Miller, this photo was taken sometime in the mid 1960's when ownership passed to Dexter & Percilla (Miller) Bacon. The distinctive round-roofed Colony barn is shown moved closer to the original log home. A small greenhouse is apparent. A large commercial garden is evident in foreground. Yard trees are near the house and heavy forest forms the background.
