Many amateur craftsmen created unique folk houses and other architectural buildings from the mid-1800s to the early-1900s. The one displayed here evokes something from a fairy tale. This fanciful house has decorative wooden shingles with an elaborate rooftop and entryway finials. The house's wooden front and back façades mimic bricks, while a small side addition appears to be a chapel attached to the house. Folk house is courtesy of the collection of Ian Berke.
