The property was owned by a Swiss family from 1873 until 2004 when the current owners purchased it. The barn was built in 1920. Construction is mortoise and tenon, with oak beams and pegs. It has been said that this is a typical "Schweitzer" (Swiss) barn, with the ramp on the west side. The Raskovic family hopes to maintain the Swiss heritage, and are currently restoring some of the smaller buildings.
