Description

The Herried House, also known as Grow House, was built by the Resettlement Administration or its successor the Farm Security Administration as part of a colony farm — not by the Works Progress Administration, as stated on Wikipedia.

The structure “is an example of a farm house associated with the Alaska Rural Rehabilitation Corporation project in the Matanuska Valley. The house is a one-and-one-half story log structure and has a rectangular floor plan. It measures 25’x 32’without the garage. The entry vestibule on the north side has a parallel orientation with the gable roof ridge. A concrete block chimney, a change at a later date, rises from the center of the roof. The small entry vestibule also has a gable roof.”
