Before the Lodge was built, it used to be a single family home built in 1894. The Rassmuson family built the home and later built a more modern home which still stands today. The original home became dilapidated and eventually became uninhabitable. That is where The Quilter’s Lodge stepped in.
The original home was torn down, however, to help preserve its history, several parts from the home have been used in the Lodge. The original brick from the house was saved and has be used throughout the Lodge. On the property stand several 120 year old trees. There are two fruit trees; an apricot and an apple tree. There are also several mulberries and choke cherries.
We literally designed the Lodge around these beautiful trees to preserve the history of the property. Some contractors said they couldn’t work unless we removed the trees, so we looked hard and found contractors willing to find a way. We hope you will come and enjoy the history of this beautiful Lodge.
