Raymond Rebarchek Colony Farm Wikipedia
The Raymond Rebarchek Colony Farm is a historic farm property on Rebarchek Avenue in Palmer, Alaska. It consists of a 40-acre (16 ha) tract of land granted to Raymond Rebarchek in a 1935 land lottery organized by the Matanuska Valley Colony, a Depression-era agricultural colony project. The property was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1978. At that time the farm complex included ten buildings, including Rebarcheck's original log house, the first built in the colony, along with a dairy barn, wellhouse, greenhouse, chicken house. The property was purchased by the Alaska State Fair in 2002, which is contemplating the establishment of a demonstration farm there.
