Brookfield in Waukesha County, Wisconsin — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
The William Donaldson House
—Visitors Center —
Several families lived in the house until it was acquired by Almond & Agrypina Bartlett in December, 1930, and it remained their home for sixty years. Their farm acreage is now Bartlett Manor subdivision. After Almond’s death, Agrypina lived in the house until 1992. The new owner, James Ihn, donated the house to the Elmbrook Historical Society. The two bedrooms were removed and the house was transported to this site on May 12, 1993. A portion of the siding was stripped to expose the log construction showing the chinking between the logs.
