Carolyn Petersen shared this century old picture of the Carsten Petersen, Sr. farmyard.  On the left side of the picture, one can barely see the farmhouse.

House On The Farm Yard
This appears to be the same house as in the "Second Home" picture, but with an addition.

According to Carolyn Petersen[2], this house was replace with a new house and this old house was used to store chicken feed and eventually was incorporated into a shed.


Circa 1910[2].


The Carsten Petersen, Sr. farmyard is located in Lost Creek Township on Section 9, four miles west and one-half mile north of Platte Center, Nebraska.

  2. Carolyn Petersen says that her father, Melvin Petersen, learned to walk in the house that replaced the house shown above, so this picture was taken before 1917.
