Historic property near Killdeer in need of repairs

KILLDEER, N.D. – A historic property near Killdeer is in need of repair from storms that ripped through Dunn County earlier this month.

The 85-year-old farmstead built by Frank and Veronica Hutmacher is owned by Preservation North Dakota. The property includes a house, garage and granary, all built with rock and mortar.

A volunteer group inspected the damage earlier in the week and found that the roofs on the house and garage were damaged.

The property was occupied by the family from 1928 until 1979. The Hutmachers never had running water. They installed electricity and a phone line in the 1960s.

The farmstead is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
