    I’m sure the tear down sentence is referencing the smaller 900 sq foot home.

    Probably right as the farmhouse looks very solid inside and out. It appears that a previous much larger family farm was parceled out or leased to nearby farmers leaving just over 8 acres of land for future owners. Numerous outbuildings and silos indicate this was a working farm until recent times. The stone clad farmhouse appears to date to around the turn of the last century and would need some updates here and there. As for agricultural use, eight acres is still enough for a few farm animals or intensive compact farming use. A family could live here and grow their own food. Madison, the state capital of Wisconsin, is less than 24 miles away by the shortest route so this locale provides country living and easy access to the big city with all of its amenities. Many nature preserves and lakes dot the region as well.

    The Wisconsin Historical Society dates the house to about 1865 and the ownership of Jane Stewart (1817-1904), who immigrated from Ayrshire, Scotland with 3 infants in 1847. Clearly, the house was at least remodeled by the subsequent owner Charles Bohn, who bought the farm around 1900. The dairy barn is 20th century, but a few of the outbuildings are also thought to date from the Stewart years.

    The recent owners were the late Harris and Cleo Brockmann. Cleo was a schoolteacher who in her retirement years presented the history of the Old Halfway Prairie School across the road to share what a one room school was like for children in the area, sometimes in costume of long dress, apron and hat. The school was used for a century from the time Jane Stewart’s children attended in the 1860’s.

      I couldn’t zoom in on the schoolhouse as close as I would have liked, but what a treasure. This Wisconsin farm ticks all my boxes and I would move there tomorrow if circumstances would allow.

  4. The main house looks pretty solid and I love the stone. Wish there were more pics of the inside.

    YES!
    Priced out of my range though. 🙁
    My wife and I have passed this house about 1000 times as Rt. 19 is the road we take when traveling this far East. I always told her I would love to find a home on 19 between 78 and 12. It is one of the PRETTIEST roads I’ve ever been on. It is right on the eastern edge of Wisconsin’s Driftless region, so hilly winding roads are the norm. There are about 10 homes on rt19 between 78 and 12 that I drool over built between 1850’ish up to a Queen Ann or two. If you ever get bored drive down this rd to the east and see what I mean, though Street View doesn’t do it justice! Miles of beauty.
