- Carl Blessing Outbuildings
- The Carl Blessing Outbuildings are a smokehouse and cellar located on the Carl Blessing farm northwest of Jerome, Idaho. The two buildings were constructed by Carl Blessing shortly after he purchased his farm in 1918. Both buildings were used to store food; the smokehouse held smoked meats, while the cellar held produce such as apples. The buildings were built with lava rock and are considered good examples of storage buildings built from the rock by a farmer. (read more...)
