Germans from Russia Stone House

The Stone House was built by the local Deutsche Leute Chapter of the Germans from Russia Heritage Society to represent the architectural style brought to North Dakota by the German immigrants from Russia.  Housing of this type contained the living quarters of people and the living quarters of their animals all under the same roof and would have been built of locally available materials, often stone and/or sod.
