Baker House, Garden & Shed (Sites 10 & 11)




The Baker House is a typical Harmonist dwelling.

Storekeeper R. L. Baker, his mother, and sister lived here.

Following George Rapp’s death, Baker. Jonathan Lenz, and Jacob Henrici led the Society and maintained the Society's business ventures.

Every household had its own garden, even though food was provided by the Society.

The shed was also vital to the household as a food storage area, tool and wood shed, chicken coop, cow stall, root cellar, and outhouse.
