Chrisholm Historic Farmstead

This 17-acre historic property was donated to the park district by Duke Energy and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Farmstead includes The Augspurger House, The Rosemont Barn and a picnic shelter which can all be reserved.

The farmhouse, built in 1874, was the home of Samuel Augspurger and his family. The Augspurgers were the leading members of the Amish-Mennonite settlement in this area. A large bank barn is also preserved and restored at this site. The restoration efforts of the house and barn have been supported by The Friends of Chrisholm. For more information about the Augspurger Family, the Amish-Mennonite settlement and the history of Chrisholm please visit the Chrisholm Historic Farmstead website.

*Note: The Augspurger Historic Home is wheelchair accessible
