A homesteaders' tribute: German-Russian immigrants build stone house near Mott

Email

MOTT

When John and Fredricka Stern built their stone house in 1907, they could have never imagined the house would stand as a testament to the thousands of German-Russian homesteaders who settled in North Dakota.

The structure, located 2 miles east of Mott, demonstrates the style of architecture used by German families while living on the Russian Steppe. It provided living quarters, storage and animal shelter all under one roof.
