The Campbell House in 1935, was without indoor plumbing, but never fear ~ no outhouse - it's restored and used as a garden shed now. 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 vacation needs for comfort :)
A main floor bedroom with a twin sleigh bed is a great option as a quiet space for exploring our many great Alaskan books you will find around the Campbell House!

The Campbell House is a restored 1935 Colony House 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.
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 home was near the Matanuska Glacier. Now we currently reside closer to the townsite of Palmer.
Why the Owner Chose Palmer, AK, USA:
Our love of Palmer and its history led us to purchase our historic 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 setting surrounded by farms that grow world famous Alaskan produce. Enjoy the glorious views of Pioneer Peak - our beloved Palmer mountain. It was a little house that needed a lot of love. Just the right house for us - love Palmer, love its history, love the location - win, win, win! :)
