The Bauserman Farm, in Shenandoah County, consists of a well-preserved 1860 Victorian house and 76 acres of land that has been farmed continuously since the early 19th century. The farmstead illustrates the evolution during 100-plus years of a successful, moderate-sized farm under the stewardship of successive generations of a single family. The farm also represents the legacy of the once dominant family-farm tradition perpetuated by German immigrants in the northern Shenandoah Valley. Historic buildings on the Bauserman Farm include a circa-1823 summer kitchen; a circa-1893 granary, a late-19th-century bank barn, and a circa-1940 chicken house among other historic structures and building foundations.
