The Archer Farm Residence in Pine Valley Township

The sketch below is the residence of Frank Archer, published in "Clark Co. illustrated", by Saterlee, Tifft & Marsh in 1890. The picture, although to point from which it was taken does not give a correct idea as to the size of the building, suggests a coziness with its wealth of foliage that is indeed inviting. The immense barns and other farm buildings are among the best in the country. The farm contains 235 acres, 10 acres of which are under improvement. Black River forms the west line of the farm, giving an abundance of water for stock. The live stock on the farm consists of 65 head of blooded and graded cattle, 9 head of horses, besides hogs and poultry. There is one barn 40 X 100 feet, 40 feet high; ;one 22 x 36, two stories high; one hay and grain barn 30 x 60; a blacksmith and carpenter shop 18 x 22, with store room above; a piggery 16 x 100, two stories high, besides a large and substantial woodshed and storehouse. The land lies just sufficiently rolling to give drainage, and it is considered one of the best in the county. It lies three miles south of Neillsville, making it a most desirable country home.
