Raddatz Farmstead

Lodgepole, Nebraska



This barn is located north of Lodgepole on a farmstead where
John (Fritz) and Augusta Raddatz lived from 1909 to 1921.

(All photos taken on Labor Day week end in 1988.)


Edward (1892-1967) and William (1899-1938) left their initials on a door frame of the barn.
They were the eighth and eleventh children of John and Augusta.


Here are two shots of the interior of the barn. But with the bright sunlight outside and no interior lighting, they did not turn out very good.


There was a small two-story house on the farmstead. The bedrooms were upstairs.
