Historical Wiedeman farmhouse to go on display

Posted: Updated:

A historical farmhouse is being prepped to go on display at a KOTA Territory museum.
 
Several generations of Wiedemans gathered in front of a farm house that's been in the family for decades.

The Wiedeman house is being refurbished to go on display at the Legacy of the Plains Museum.

The 1930s to 1950s era house will give visitors a taste of what life was like for a farm family living in the area many years ago.

Ruth Schmunk, the benefactor who grew up in the house, says she is honored to have her family's legacy on display, and is glad future generations can benefit from it.
 
"They will understand how we really lived in the 30's, and the 40's, and the 50's. This generation doesn't know that, and it can be used as an educational tool."
 
Crews are still working on several finishing touches on the house, the structure will not open for public tours until June 17.
