Own a piece of Hermantown History….. The Jackson Homes Project was part of the New Deal Program headed up by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.
The 2 story homes were built in eight styles from 1936-1938 with the idea to give people a fresh start and better housing in a rural setting as part of that periods back-to-the-land movement. Each of Hermantown’s 84 homesteads had a brick veneer farmhouse; half also had a garage/barn combination. Each family also received a pig, a cow, and 35 chickens. With the idea that the family would be able to raise its own food and use the profits from selling any surplus to work off its debt to the Government. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to own a piece of history with this 3 bedroom home with hardwood floors and all the quaint character of that era. Located on a corner lot in Hermantown close to schools and shopping.
