The Huhne Homestead, Montana

This farmstead was built in the late 20's/early 30's by a farmer named Herman Huhne. It has no running water, so the farmer would have to haul his water from a well 2 miles north on a neighboring farm. The house has now been abandoned for over 50 years. I found the history of this place on flickr member Solson's page, and I hope he doesn't mind if I shared it! Thank you in advance Solson!

I honestly can't think of a better location for a house, on the flat beautiful prairie land of the hi-line with the Sweetgrass hills in the background. I wanted to look inside but there was a winter wheat crop that had sprung up and I wasn't about to stomp through all the farmer's hard work! Actually finding this place was interesting, I saw it from the highway back in a field and remembered that another flickr member had posted photos of it. So my husband and I took our car along some pretty bumpy pasture roads (tracks) until we got as close as we could. It was an adventure!


Here are three videos I took while photographing this place:
