‘Stone farm house fence copy’

This 1890s photo by Gus Meier shows a typical evolution of the Wabaunsee County farm. Notice the log building to the right of the two-story stone house. It’s likely that it was an original homestead cabin. In the foreground, log outbuildings are visible at both ends of the livestock lots. Notice the thatched roof on the long loafing shed.
