Property description

The Campbell House, an original 1935 Matanuska Colony farm house, is conveniently located in the heartland of Palmer, just 45 minutes from Anchorage and near the Alaska State Fairgrounds - home of the world famous giant vegetables!
Outstanding mountain views, small town friendliness, surrounded by beautiful vegetable farmlands - this is what Palmer is all about!
A stay at the Campbell House is a step back in time with all the comforts of today! Beautifully restored hardwood floors, staircase, columns, historical style windows and many antiques combined with contemporary comforts add up to an unforgettable stay! Relax the day away in the beautiful Master Bedroom upstairs with a luxurious king size bed and awesome mountain views!
Across the hall another delightful bedroom with beautiful hardwood floors and a pair of inviting comfortable twin beds.
A beautiful fully equipped, bright and shiny, new kitchen is ready for you! Whether you love to cook or just use the microwave and fridge ~ it's all there :)
Morning coffee in the dining room ~ sunshine and mountains are on the menu!
The living area is as comfy as can be with two leather loveseats and leather chair and ottoman, and upholstered occasional chair - lots of options for watching that 40 inch TV after a long day of exploring the magnificent state of Alaska!
The Campbell House in 1935, was without indoor plumbing, but never fear ~ No outhouse!! We had you in mind when we designed this bathroom! A large custom tile walk in shower, a beautiful antique vanity with contemporary glass vessel sink, modern privy and stacking washer and dryer will meet all your needs :)
A cozy bedroom with a twin sleigh bed on the main floor is a great option as a quiet space for exploring our many great Alaskan books you will find around the Campbell House!
So many options for getting out and about when you stay at the Campbell House! You can experience Hatchers Pass, the Reindeer Farm, the Musk Ox Farm, Matanuska Glacier, hike the Butte or Lazy Mountain for starters ~ and still have time to put your feet up at the end of the day and watch the sunset above Pioneer Peak at the Campbell House!
Alaska has beauty twelve months of the year ~ it's always a perfect time to visit!
Palmer and the Campbell House - two of the Must See's while in Alaska!!!

The Campbell House is a restored Colony House from 1935, located in the heartland of Palmer, in the shadows of magnificent Pioneer Peak and surrounding farmlands.

Palmer is a historic town which grew rapidly when the New Deal Act of 1935 was put into action by President Roosevelt. Colonists from Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin were selected to move to Alaska to develop the land thru farming and related industry.

The Colonists lived in a Tent City until the lottery drawing took place which determined their home sites.

George and Onabel Campbell from Mio, Michigan drew Quarter 54 in the lottery drawing and were assigned the property that the Campbell House is on. Also still standing is the original chicken brooder.

Palmer town square has many historic buildings and monuments teaching about this time in United States history.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We love living in the unique small town of Palmer Alaska! We have called Palmer home since moving to Alaska in the 1980's. Our first Palmer home was near the Matanuska Glacier. Now we currently reside closer to the townsite of Palmer.

Why the Owner Chose Palmer:
Our love of Palmer and its history led us to purchase an abandoned colony house. This little gem needed some tender loving care to restore her to her former glory and to continue telling her story. The Campbell House is located on the Springer system of roads ~ a most sought after location! Its a beautiful piece of property surrounded by farms that grow world famous Alaskan produce! It has glorious views of Pioneer Peak - our beloved Palmer mountain! It was a little house that needed alot of love! Just the right house for us - love Palmer, love its history, love the location - win, win, win! :)

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The Campbell House has been accepted to the National Historic Register! So exciting to have restored and preserved ~ and to share the history of the 1935 Palmer Colony project! *Recipient of the Historic Preservation Award 2013 *Member of Mat-Su Convention and Visitors Bureau.
