Single-Pen Tenant Farmhouse, 1935, Marion County

This is one of the most extraordinary tenant houses I’ve ever seen.

At first glance, it appears to be a typical example of the form.

But further inspection reveals an inscription on the local stone chimney, dating it to 29 March 1935. While I have seen a few dated chimneys in my travels, this is the first one I’ve encountered on such a utilitarian structure. It’s an amazing testament to the pride of the builder, who may have also been the tenant.

As this remnant wall suggests, this already tiny house was subdivided, suggesting it may have been home to two tenants.

It also includes a shed room at the rear of the house, which is relatively typical with this form.

Queen Anne Folk Victorian Farmhouse & Barn, Marion County

This historic farmhouse is a great example of Folk Victorian architecture.

As is somewhat common in this area, local stone was used in the construction of the chimney.
