The historic Peter Loewen house was built in 1876 by a Mennonite family using adobe bricks and mud, with slough grass for the roof. This seven-room house contains period furnishings. It was long known as the "Adobe House". The adjacent machine shed has a variety of horse-drawn farming implements and tools. The Dutch Friesen Windmill, a replica of an 1876 wind driven mill, a country schoolhouse and a visitor center are also on the grounds.
