Abram & Sallie Printz Farm, also known as Mountainview, is a well-preserved farmstead of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Established in the 1870s by Abram Printz, a carpenter and planing mill owner, the farm lies at the foot of Stony Man Mountain in central Page County. The relatively plain two-story frame farmhouse is distinguished by mantels, doors, and stair details of vernacular Greek Revival and Victorian character. Surrounding the house are domestic and agricultural outbuildings that mostly date from the early 20th century. These include a bank barn with mortise-and-tenon frame construction, a meat house with an overhanging front gable, and a washhouse conveniently sited beside a creek.
