Murthum-Vander Vlucht House
This farm house was built in 1895. The architectural design is a combination of Greek Revival & Queen Anne (noted by the gables, dental moldings, fish scale shingles and fret work).
The house originally sat 200 ft. E. from it's current location. It was moved in the 1920's when Mound Road was changed from a horse & buggy dirt road.
Several acres of land were later used for the Willima Murthum School, also known as Victory School.
