The farmhouse and outbuildings are constructed of sandstone mortared with clay, both quarried from the farm's surrounding hill- sides. The roof uses ridgepoles and rafters locally cut and covered with successive layers of brush (chokecherry, plum), flax, straw, clay, and aggregate. The house was built by second-generation German- Russian immigrants in the 1920s and was occupied into the 1970s. The site is being restored by Preservation North Dakota, a statewide nonprofit dedicated to preserving and celebrating the architecture, historic places, and communities of North Dakota. PND invites individuals and small groups to participate in the upcoming Hutmacher Field Days Aug. 6-8, 2010. Under direction of seasoned leaders, volunteers will learn to mix clay for use on the roof and walls and see first-hand how earthen structures are built to withstand the elements. For more information, please contact Jen Wilkie at (701) 356- 3001 or Volunteers must RSVP by July 31, at which time additional informa- tion will be provided. A minimum of 10 participants is necessary for the Field Days to continue as sched- uled. The Hutmacher Farm is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and has received generous support from Save America's Treasures, a private-public partner- ship between the National Park Service and the National Trust for Historic Preservation. rm i Pleasel support your local merchants! local independent businesses am " your best value stren our community and mr economy @ @
