The outbuildings are still useful to the farmstead, although repairs had to be made.
The chicken coop had not seen chickens for years, but now they are back. See a Photo Essay of the chickens, and the renovation of the Chicken Coop, a story of repairs and new occupants. Below - The chickens, outside the chicken coop.
The old storage shed continues to be used for storage - you never know what you will need on a farm. See a Photo Essay. The chicken coop is to the left, in the photo below.
A new storage & display barn was built in 2015 to the west of the Show Barn. See a Photo Essay.
A garage was brought to the farmstead in April 2009 from downtown. It was placed near the windmill. The "Big House" was located about here. It burned down in 1933 (scroll down to see an old photo). See a Photo Essay of the Garage and Windmill
The Maasdam home, looking from the southeast. Barns are in the far background, behind the windmill. It was built
about 1910, but burned down in 1933, forcing the family to move back to the older house (the Richey House).
