Folk Victorian Farmhouse, Dooly County

This exceptional double-pen farmhouse in northwestern Dooly County, featuring a shed room at the rear, is a highly stylized example of the form. Queen Anne porch posts give the house its distinct appearance, and the floor-to-ceiling windows and transom are unusual features for such a small house.

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.

Abandoned House, Rupert

I believe this was a house, but it’s possible it was a store. It’s located at the center of what was once Rupert. It’s difficult to distinguish the town site today.
