For much of the 20th century the Klingel farmhouse looked very different from its Civil War appearance. Red-painted weatherboarding covered the core log structure. A large two-story addition had been made behind the house.
The original log structure of the house was revealed when a corner of the weatherboarding was removed. The decision was made that the weatherboarding could be removed and the structure restored to its Civil War appearance.
