Helendale Stock Farm, Richland County North Dakota

Fargo, ND: Walker Brothers Printers, [1918].

5 x 7.5 inches, 13 pp + sketch map, with illustrations from photographs. Wrappers partially detached, some dampstaining; good only. The 2,325-acre Helendale Stock Farm was created in 1875 by James Buel Power (1833-1912), the first Land Commissioner of the Northern Pacific Railway and its General Agent for the Minnesota and Dakota division. After he retired, he became director of the North Dakota Board of Agriculture, served on the Board of Trustees (and for a two years as Acting President) of the North Dakota Agricultural College, and was elected to the North Dakota House of Representatives. Six years after his death, his executors put the farm on the market to settle the estate and published this booklet to advertise the property. It provides details on the yields of various crops grown on the farm, touts the attributes of the livestock raised there (shorthorn cattle, sheep, horses, and Yorkshire hogs), describes the twelve-room farmhouse and many outbuildings, and offers terms for financing. Not located in OCLC.
