    Right down the road from Maharishi Vedic City. Iowa is a weird, wonderful state.

      Sorry, I’m from Iowa and I don’t understand the weird part. The wonderful is very accurate. We have all 4 seasons in detail, a rich history, and lots of accomplishments from the Manhattan Project to NASA. Right now we are being inundated by rain and severe storms. The house is a typical Iowa farm house. I’m sure it’s seen it’s share of Iowa weather! There’s not very many pictures of the inside.

        I’m from Iowa too! Consider it a term of endearment. 🙂

        I don’t think it was meant as a slight. I think the term ‘weird’ was used as ‘interesting’. I would love to visit Iowa and see all the weird and wonderful sights.

        I’m from Iowa as well! I agree, Iowa is a “weird” because as many Midwestern States we are a melting pot of so many different origins! I don’t take offense to weird, as I know how absolutely wonderful that State is and how nice most of the people who reside there are!

    Originally the 150 acre farm of Phillip Berrier (1827-1915), his wife Sarah Redding and their 2 children, Henry and Julia Ann. Of Swiss heritage, Berrier came to the Plains from North Carolina and settled here at Locust Grove before 1870, the approximate date of construction. The family moved on in the 1890’s and the farm was purchased by the family of Abraham Conner.

      1850 Italianate, classical
      New Haven, CT

      As usual, thanks for the research you did, Jim.
      I guesstimated that the house was later than 1880, judging from the relative simplicity of the woodwork on the inside, of which very similar syling was in use well into the 1910’s or possibly even later (although I know the outside brackets could argue for an earlier build date). I’m trying to better understand the time periods when different interior woodwork designs were most popular and would greatly appreciate anyone who can supply references on this topic or personal knowledge about it. Thanks!
