Hutmacher Farm

The Hutmacher farm is on the National Register of Historic Places. It is considered the midwest’s finest still-standing example of the earthen abodes built by Germans from Russia. Believe it or not, Alex Hutmacher lived here until 1979.

The Hutmacher farm has been undergoing restoration. You can get more information here. These photos contributed by Kim Dvorak.

    The Hutmacher farm complex is a treasure to North Dakota. I would recommend visiting there to anyone that is interested. Preservation North Dakota ( has done a fantastic job of spearheading the restoration project. If you are interested in keeping the progress going, consider becoming a member of PND.

    I last visited Hutmacher in 2003 well before the restoration efforts started. It is an amazing place, it’s quite a distance from the nearest town.
