Around 1892, Joseph William Parker traded his house and land in Joseph for 74 acres of undeveloped land outside town. He built a one-room sawed log house where the large family was reared until this Victorian Eclectic style home was finished in 1911. The home was designed by architect/builder A.G. Young of Richfield and was constructed of local oolite limestone. This farm included an outstanding Jersey dairy herd and became a “show place of agricultural activity.” Mr. Parker helped organize the Joseph Cooperative and served as bishop of the Joseph Ward of the LDS Church.
