As the Helmcken family grew, so did this house. You can see three stages in the structure.

[Right section]
The original 1852 log cabin was built in a fur trade post-in-sill style with hand hewn squared logs and cedar shingles. Hearths in three rooms join into a single chimney.

[Middle section]
This house's middle section, containing a dining room and upstairs bedrooms, was added in 1856.

[Left section]
In 1883 Dr. Helmcken added a framed wing with a second story and front porch. Later a glass sunroom extension was added inside the picket fence, with its own door into the house. It was removed in the 1940s.
