The Wallendorf Home is a two-story, dogtrot-style log home built in mid 1800s. Placed on the National Register of Historic Places by the U.S. Department of the Interior in 2008, the home continues to inspire imaginations and allows visitors to step back in time!
The home was originally located seven miles from the State Capitol in Jefferson City, Missouri near what is now West Edgewood Drive and Missouri 179. In 2004, the Missouri Farm Bureau Foundation for Agriculture rescued the structure from rapid deterioration by having it relocated to its headquarters. In the process of moving the home, extra measures and precautions were taken to ensure the building will stay stable and sound for generations to come.
The unique log home is dedicated to telling the story and history of agriculture with historic artifacts, displays, and short videos describing agricultural life for inhabitants of a young Missouri. The home is located behind the Missouri Farm Bureau Center at the corner of Missouri Blvd. and South Country Club Drive (approximately 5.5 miles west of the State Capitol off Highway 50).
