A melancholy late afternoon with first flakes swirling is a fitting backdrop for this miniature farmstead in the Fulton County town of Perth. This dark little house seems reduced from some larger original, its gambrel roof is a father's hat swallowing the head of a small boy. The Amsterdam area has numerous Dutch-style houses from the early 1700s, so its basic structure could be very old. However, the door and window millwork appear to be circa 1920, a popular time for building in the Dutch Colonial style. In contrast, the farm's diminuitive barn appears to have been an English style, with a wagon door in the long side rather than the gable end.
