Wright Homestead

.

1520. Wright Homestead. 2003. This ranch, located on the Tarryall Road (Park County 77) 4.4 miles east of Jefferson, includes a large residential structure and several outbuildings on a slope above Michigan Creek, mostly on the north side of the road. Silas Wright, a native of New York, was granted a Homestead Entry Patent for the land in 1912. The log residence was constructed in about 1879 with additions made into the 1890s. The residence and other structures have survived with virtually no alterations. Source: Eve Kuenn
