Huble Homestead Historic Site

In 1911 Albert Huble returned from a visit to his family in Ontario with a new bride, Annie, and her daughter Ada. In the fall when Mrs. Huble had another baby, Bertha, the cabin in which they were living became too small for the growing family. The house he built was a typical Ontario farmhouse, complete with squared logs and dovetailed corners. The house took nearly a year to complete. Mr. Huble recorded his start in his diary when he wrote on January 18th, 1912 that he "broke road up the hill to get the house logs". Throughout the winter he records spending a considerable amount of time felling and hewing logs for the house.
