 Overview
 Description
Old farmhouse with remains of barn and silo. Not much more than that... Barn is pretty nasty, falling apart and basement is full of snowmobile related stuff. House is not so bad, seems to have been a fire at some point. Feel free to check the house basement, didn't trust the stairs and no way I was going down there...

     History
    Judging from the construction methods used in the main barn this place appears to be fairly old. Hand tools were used to cut the planks and shape the beams. Looks to have been built in the late 1800s though I haven't looked for an exact date. Judging from the signage and from the overabundance of snowmobile parts int he barn this place was used as a repair shop for snowmobiles. There is also what appears to be a showroom in front of the house which was probably used to sell snowmobile parts.

    [UPDATE]
    The metal sheds are gone, as well as the showroom in front of the house. The barn is just rafters and basement, metals walls are mostly gone.
    [/UPDATE]
