Village of Jackson, WisconsinThis home was built on the original homestead of 40-acres in Section 20, Town of Jackson, Washington County, Wisconsin. The land was purchased from the United States government on April 11, 1846, by Jacob Moersfelder, who later deeded the parcel to his son Peter and wife Juliana on September 1, 1860. Following Peter's death (1861), Juliana married John Schmahl, Sr. in 1864, who subsequently took ownership of the Moersfelder land in 1865 including the original log home.
