Description

Image is of a field of harvested and shocked grain in foreground with a log house and Colony-style barn and other buildings in middle ground. A fringe of trees frame the farmstead with Lazy Mountain in background. This farm belonged to M. D. Snodgrass who was instrumental in establishing the Matanuska Experiment Farm and in recruiting farmers from the states to come to Alaska to farm. He was also a supporter of the Matanuska Colony project and later made part of his farm land available for growth of the city of Palmer.
