Kapus Farmstead

Status: SAVED!

Year Listed: 2008

Settled in the 1880s, the Kapus Farm evokes the feeling of an early-twentieth century farmstead, and is unique as one of the few relatively intact complexes of farm buildings remaining in Clark County.  The farm retains the 1888 farmhouse, but most of the structures on site date from circa 1929 when a live-in carpenter was employed to modernize the farm.  During this time, he remodeled the farmhouse and constructed a water tower, garage, and outhouse, all of which remain at the site.  The water tower is especially unique being a four-story, wood-frame structure with a gabled roof still housing the original 2,500-gallon wooden water tank
