You might check out the pages about this property on the HABS/HAER website. It includes some information about the house when it was first surveyed in 1936.

I was so happy to see this picture of the log cabin my great great great grandfather built. He came to this country in 1884 and I have been trying to get more info on my genealogy of the Turck family.

I visited Old Wisconsin when his name was still on the cabin.

I would like to g t more info.
