Squatters had built these sod structures on the Mann Howard homestead when Howard arrived.
The Ed Heinemeyer homestead between Stanton and Hazen was in many ways typical of those established by the earliest settlers in Mercer County.
This neighborhood gathering of the August Isaak, Jacob Mohl, John Neuberger, and Gut Schlender families was a typical Sunday afternoon get-together among families in early days of settlement.
This carefully maintained earth home is one of the few still occupied in North Dakota. Otto and Elfrieda Goetz make thier home in this house built by Otto's grandfather.
