There was a dirt floor basement and the stone part of the home was a living room on the main level with a bedroom avove. The back addition housed a kitchen and dining area with a bedroom and bath above. A front porch was added on and later removed. In 1984 the building became the DAIRYHAUS, a favorite spot for homemade ice cream.
