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.
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.
This photograph dates to 2009. The house was located between Marshallville and Garden Valley; I’m not sure if it’s still standing.
If not a general store, this was possibly a commissary, precinct house, or even a schoolhouse. I will update when I learn more.
