Built in 1874, the Augspurger House 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 first floor of the Augspurger House is wheelchair accessible.
