Pioneer House

Description: Photograph of a group of older men and women standing outside of a two-story house. Although names have been provided through accompanying information, they have not been matched properly to the photograph. They stand in a line in front of a patio and a small scaffold. The patio is covered by a sloping roof surface supported by slender wooden columns. The left part of the house appears to be older than the right, judging by the aged look of the siding that covers that part of the house. The right side, on the other hand, looks to be an add-on to the house. Much of its walls have been covered by construction underlayment. The roofs, additionally, have been covered in tar paper.

Pioneer House

Description: Photograph of a group of older men and women standing outdoors in front of a two-story house. Although names have been provided by accompanying information, they have not been matched properly to the people in the picture. They stand in front of a small scaffold that touches the edge of a sloping roof that covers the patio. The overhang created by the roof is supported by two wooden columns. Construction underlayment covers the part of the house that is closest to them. The rest of the house, on the other hand, appears to be much older; the siding, for instance, looks aged and weathered. Tar paper covers intersecting gable roofs on all sides.

Museum Groundbreaking

Description: Photograph of a group of people standing in a row around a small model structure in Danevang, Texas. The model has a red roof and bears the Danish flag on the side wall. A sign to the right of the group of people reads, "future home of Danevang Heritage Society Museum" followed by an address for inquiries. A building in the rightmost part of the image has been mostly cropped out, but some of its architectural details can be seen, like its white siding and shingled inclined roof. Although names have been provided, they have not been matched to the individuals pictured, with the exception of Elaine Wind, who holds a folded blueprint in the front row.
